Phoebe's quick knit sweater

Phoebe lost some weight this year, her last sweater is huge on her.
 It wasn’t the easiest to put on anyhow  she didn’t like me buttoning it up, took too long lol. So this years model is taking in account all of the new and old dislikes ;)

No buttons

No sleeves or anything between her front legs at all

Not too warm

No fun fur around the neck

I went totally basic and easy with this one.. nothing more that a tube with a hole in it lol
I didn't get the gauge or yardage so this is more of a pattern idea....

Size 11 Us needles

Cast on 38 sts using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn, join in the round

1 by 1 ( knit one, purl one repeat to end of row ) for 6 inches

Bind off in pattern 10 stitches

Knitting flat 1 by 1 ( knitting all knit stitches and purling all purls ) for 4 inches

Make 10 stitches rejoin in the round

1 by 1 for 4 1/2 inches

Bind off, weave in ends.
