- 3 skeins of baby-weight yarn in the color of your choice
- Size 7 knitting needles
- Yarn needle
Step 1: Cast On
Using your size 7 needles, cast on 60 stitches. This will be the back of your sweater.
Step 2: Knit the Back
Knit in stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl one row) until the piece measures 10 inches from the cast-on edge. Bind off.
Step 3: Knit the Front
Repeat Steps 1 and 2 to create the front piece.
Step 4: Knit the Sleeves
Cast on 30 stitches on your size 7 needles. Knit in stockinette stitch until the piece measures 6 inches from the cast-on edge. Bind off. Repeat for the second sleeve.
Step 5: Sew the Sleeves
Using your yarn needle, sew the sleeves to the front and back pieces of the sweater.
Step 6: Knit the Collar
Using your size 7 needles, cast on 80 stitches. Knit in stockinette stitch until the collar measures 2 inches. Bind off.
Step 7: Add the Embossed Bows
To add the embossed bows, use the yarn needle to create a series of bows on the front of the sweater. To do this, simply thread the needle with yarn and weave it through the front of the sweater, creating loops that resemble bows. You can add as many or as few bows as you'd like, depending on your preference.
Step 8: Finish the Sweater
Using your yarn needle, weave in any loose ends and trim any excess yarn. Your beautiful new baby sweater with embossed bows is now complete!
