Towpath Henley

Thank you to everyone who helped with naming this little gem! Let me introduce to you the Towpath Henley (congrats Franny G.! I've sent you an email).
 
 
One more long-sleeved sweater to round out the season. I know so many people still have snow and even though we don't, it's still only like 37 degrees (F) here. So brr.

 
The Towpath Henley is knit out of fingering weight yarn, making it the perfect sweater to transition your kiddo from winter into spring. The sample is knit in the 12 m. size and uses just one skein of The Plucky Knitter's Merino Cashmere Nylon Fingering (in colorway Trusty Rusty).


 
Towpath Henley begins with a provisional cast on to achieve the folded hem. It is knit in the round from the bottom up, sleeves are knit separately and joined at the yoke which is finished with raglan shaping. The button bands are also folded to give the sweater a more tailored look, along with an applied i-cord on the collar.
 
 


 
 

What I'm really excited about is that this sweater is available in 10 sizes! From 3 months to 12! So now you can make one for all the kiddos in your brood.
 
 
I like this picture because those cheeks look like they are terribly heavy to carry around.

  3. I just LOVE this pattern! I made the 3-6 month old size for my future nephew, who we are expecting in October. His name will be Henry, so in my mind this pattern is "Towpath Henry." It's especially meaningful to me because my family has a house built on a towpath in the mountains in Pennsylvania, and that is my most favorite place in the world. I hope the future parents love the sweater as much as I do, so I can make it again and again in different sizes as little Henry grows up. Thank you for a GREAT design that was interesting enough for this sock knitter, but not too complicated, either!
