EZ February Baby Sweater

Pattern: The February Baby Sweater, by Elizabeth Zimmermann, found in _The Knitter's Almanac_

Yarn: Caron's Simply Soft, 1.5 skeins (acrylic! gasp! sorry EZ! next time it'll be wool!)

Needles: US 5 circulars

Modifications: No real modifications, except for the helpful advice of those many who have gone before who suggested casting on an extra stitch on each side of the sleeves (so cast on 8 instead of 7 stitches), and then you can slip this extra stitch each time. This slipped extra stitch will create an easy-to-seam-border for the under-arm seam.

More information on the making of this sweater can be found here on the original blog post.
