    I’ve never knitted before; this is my first project. (I crocheted baby booties once, though.)

    First, I looked up tutorials for each stitch. Then, I skimmed through all three videos to understand how each part is put together. Next, I practiced the first several rows on scrap yarn four times until they came out not wonky and looked like the tutorial. I also tried knitting it left handed, (my dominant hand), but it’s just too confusing, so I’m going to knit it right handed.

    My supplies arrived in the mail and it took three days to knit the sweater. I made a few errors, but they’re hardly noticeable. I learned a lot, and the sweater turned out pretty well. Hopefully my new niece/nephew will enjoy!

    Thanks so much for the tutorial!

  12. Raga Nasrat on August 14, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Can I make the cardigan without the circular needles. They only sell the straight ones in our country.



  13. Dorian Alikaj on August 14, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    The neck circumference is supposed to be only 9cm in your written instructions, isn’t that far to small?



  14. Sarah S on August 14, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    I’m new to this, where can I print the pattern?



  15. Elizabeth Douglas on August 14, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Thank you for sharing the pattern



  28. Greta Farrell on August 14, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    You’re such a lovely lady and this is a great tutorial, I truly hate to criticise or judge but I’m very confused, the video and written instructions differ (at least to me, of course I could be missing something). I cast on 42 stitches (per written instructions) which I believe from the comments to be correct. I am now at the finished increases stage but have 130 stitches and according to the written pattern I should have 128. But, if you start with 42 and end up with 128 that’s an increase of 86 stitches which is not a multiple of 8 (which is what you increase in every second row). The 130 stitches that I have makes mathematical sense but I don’t want to proceed in case I have missed something. Any advice from anyone would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.



  29. Veronica Dickes on August 14, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    I am on my third one. How can I make a bigger one for say, 6 mos old and 0ne year old? I know I have to cast on many more stitches. But how do I divide them for the arm , and back?



  30. Dennis Bougie on August 14, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    I’m confused, if you knit four rows after casting on 42 you end up on the wrong side and both ends of yarn are at the beginning. Am I doing something wrong?



  31. Kiran Kapoor on August 14, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    Ma’am I have sent an email pls check



  32. Cathie H. on August 14, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    The finished chest size of 18 cm that’s tiny is that right?



  33. Lesley Wilford on August 14, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    How could I modify this for a 3-6 month old?

  39. Hailey Weston on August 14, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    i know this is an old video but are we supposed to do one rest row and one increase row alternating for the part where we have to make it 3.5 inches?

  50. Daisy China on August 14, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Thanks so much for this, however, just got to the end of part 1 and the button hole bit is at the end rather than the beginning ! Maybe the editing needs to be reivewed? I will just carry on without the hole as I have already done the first part…
