Wonderful Wallaby

Last week, I knit this child’s size 8 Wonderful Wallaby. This is a hooded sweater with a front pouch. The pattern is designed by Carol Anderson at Cottage Creations. This pattern is such fun to knit. There are no seams and just a little bit of Kitchner stitch joining under the arms and at the top of the hood. Construction begins at the bottom and the pouch is knit as you work your way up to the underarms. Then the sleeves are knit in the round from the cuffs to the underarms. The yoke is knit across sleeve and body stitches with raglan decreases. The hood continues on from the neck stitches, knitting back and forth. The pattern book includes directions for sizes from infant through very large adult. Just Google Carol Anderson+Cottage Creations to find sources where the pattern can be purchased.
