Elijah baby sweater pattern

Note: I am currently reworking this pattern slightly, so if you purchase the current .pdf, I will send you the update as soon as it is ready. The primary changes will be to lengthen the section below the cable (and therefore the back as well), and to make the neck opening slightly smaller.

This pattern is available as a Ravelry Download, and was worked with Lanas Puras Melosa worsted weight yarn, although you can substitute most any yarn. This lovely stuff has a bit more loft than a Cascade 220 or a Patons Classic. It is knitted from the bottom front up and over the top in one piece, then sides and bottoms of sleeves are seamed.
