Row 1: K2tog, p2tog to end of row.
Row 2: K1, p1 to end of row.
Row 3: K2tog to end of row.

I'm gonna try this. We have newborns here all the time. It's Mexico's national crop!

I'm going to make it! Don't know any newborns, but it will be good practice. I'm bogged down with my sweater because I need to steam the pieces flat and start assembling them and I have a subconscious fear that things won't go smoothly and I will be disappointed with the final project. Plus, then I won't have a project and will have to go spend $100 on yarn for the next one. Has this ever happened to you?
