Notes: this pattern came about after I knit up preemie hats using Carissa’s pattern: http://carissaknits.blogspot.com/2007/07/preemie-hats-for-charity.html and the pattern for the Baby Jiffy Knit Baby Sweater: http://wishingiwasknitting.blogspot.com/2007/07/baby-jiffy-knit-sweater.html . Back some time ago, I used the texture from the Baby Jiffy Knit Sweaters to make some hats for newborn sizes and posted them under the Baby Hats pattern:
http://wishingiwasknitting.blogspot.com/2007/06/baby-hats-and-more-deliveries.htmldeliveries.html Hopefully these patterns will help you dress up your sweaters.

Here is a group of pictures to help you M1P (Make 1 Purl). Since I have written this pattern to be knit in the round, you’re not going to flip it over and knit it flat, thus you will NOT be using a regular M1 stitch, which uses a Knit stitch.

1) K2 Tog (together) all around the row

2) Bring your yarn forward, as if you’re going to purl.

3) with the tip of your right hand needle, lift the bar thread you find between the two stitches on your needles.

4) purl into that lifted stitch

5) purl the stitch on your left hand needle

6) continue with the M1P (Make 1 Purl), P1 all the way around
