I have been looking for a quick baby sweater to knit as gifts for several babies this christmas and i found this http://www.woolworks.org/patterns/5-hour.txt  It fits the bill since it only takes 5 hours (Apparently).  Or NOT.  The pattern is written in a very strange way so my plan was to do the first part which is straight forward then try to work the rest out at the time.  But i am also rubbish at lace knitting and so have frogged the whole lot twice already as i had some mysterious holes where ther should be none!!! Would anyone like to join me and see if we can work it out together???

Try this version - same sweater, just written a little clearer I think. And I've never done it in less than 7 or 8 hours.  Still a quick knit, just not 5-hour quick (unless you knit faster than I do  Wink ). I'm not sure if I'll knit the sweater now, but I'll be glad to help with any questions.

cheers, i kinda managed a rough thing and it worked out ok except it's a cardi not a sweater and is knit from the collar down.  Did not know this which added to confusion.  Gonna re do but maybe i'll try your version.  Thanks Smiley
