At long last I've sized and finalized this pattern, which I started writing two and a half years ago! Named after Candlestick Park, the home of the San Francisco Giants during my childhood, this little cotton baby sweater is modeled after men's raglan-sleeved baseball t-shirts. As with my other free patterns, Candlestick has not been tech edited, though the greatest amount of care was given in writing and proof reading it! If you have any questions whatsoever or encounter any errors, please do not hesitate to email or pm me on Ravelry.
