Knitting pattern for Baby - Apple Raglan Red Delicious

Original pattern by Rebecca Craig for Biscotte Yarns ♥ Your little one will be the apple of your eye in this raglan pull over.  Inspired by the scrumptious Apple's Heart colorway this sweater is knit from the bottom up and seamed together.  It showcases the self-striping color in the body of the sweater transitioning into a semi-solid stripe in brown and a green bramble stitch yoke.

An opening at the left front raglan seam helps to make the sweater easy to get over baby’s head. Options are provided to close using snaps and buttons.  The piece is finished off with a 2x2 rib at the hem, cuffs, and neck.  The sample is 12-month size with the raglan opening secured with snaps.


Newborn (3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years) (Schematic at the end of pattern)
