A baby and toddler sweater in all-over texture thanks to the dot stitch. With a cozy hood and toggle closures, it's sure to keep baby warm in Spring breezes and Fall winds and is easily layered under a winter coat. Of course, you can easily vary the closures to whatever style you like, and a contrasting color can spice up the ribbing. The  dot stitch is easily memorized and provides for a quick knitting experience, while giving the knitter a change from stockinette.
