This is an Elizabeth Zimmerman hand knit pattern adapted for knitting machines by Alethea
The pattern is written for the bulky machine, but there is a worksheet provided which will enable you to chart this sweater for any size and any machine and any yarn that you wish to use. I knit the instructions as they are on a standard machine and came up with a doll-sized sweater.

1 each 100 gram ball contrast color (CC)

NOTES: 1) When it tells you to "repeat," repeat the section between * and * just previous to the instruction to repeat. 2) You can be creative on your cuffs and edgings. Instructions are for 1x1 ribbing, but you can crochet, or whatever else suits your fancy!

PUTTING IT TOGETHER
Hang loops of one cuff edge on machine and K1R at T6 in CC. Transfer to 1x1 rib and K7R
at T3. K1R at T10 and BO in rib. Repeat for other cuff. Fold as
shown in picture and sew shoulder seams.
(The following instructions will give you a scalloped type neck as shown in the pictures. If you prefer a ribbed neck, knit the bottom and neck bands before you knit the button and buttonhole bands.)
