2 Hour, machine-knit Child Sweater

There are so many things you can do with the 2 hour sweater!
Hacks in this version:

  1. Used 2 colors and added stripes
  2. Eliminated the 1″ front rolled edges (I cast on and bound off with waste yarn)
  3. Picked up the neckline, front edges (from the waste yarn) and hem on a large circular hand knitting needle
  4. Hand knit garter stitch around the entire opening, adding mitered corners with increases
  5. Added garter stitch to the cuffs as well

I have to confess that the hand knitting took longer than knitting the sweater! But the results are well worth the time. If you want a fast project, stick with the machine knit rolled edges in the pattern.
