Waiting for Baby

I designed this just prior to the birth of my 4th child.  My husband said: “It’s actually quite useful” (so it must be!).  There are no seams; it is knit from top (including the neckband) to bottom.  It fulfilled my need for something practical and really quick to knit.

Instructions provided for making this as a sleeveless vest, or a sweater (with sleeves).

Also available on Ravelry.
