Hello friends! Today’s knit is a quick and easy baby sweater that I literally knit in one night. It takes about 2 hours I would say. So if you are ever in need of a quick last minute gift keep this sweater in mind.

I loved knitting this easy baby sweater because it called for a bulky yarn and a size 11 needle. Which meant the sweater could be completed in one to two sittings. The perfect quick knit!

I actually made this with the left over yarn from my Corner to Corner baby blanket and so coincidently the baby sweater has a matching baby blanket as well. Win win.

For this easy baby sweater I used this Wee Speedy pattern that is a free pattern on Ravelry. This pattern is a top down cardigan- we start knitting at the neck and then the entire sweater is knit in one piece. There isn’t any sewing of pieces involved.

A top down cardigan has always been my go to pattern- I have knitted similar sweaters previously on my blog: The Quick knit girls cardigan and also the Knitted cardigan for girls.

For my sweater, I did make a few pattern changes. First one, I made my sweater in garter stitch, I simple knit all the rows. Second, I made my sweater color blocked using two colors of yarn instead of just one (as the pattern calls for). And lastly, I moved the button hole up a few rows.

Once the sweater was finished, I added a simple crochet border around the neck and center with a soft pink colored yarn. I sewed in a button and my easy baby sweater was done!

I loved how the sweater turned out! The pattern is simple, the yoke so pretty and I love the little button detail.
