Question - Since i love this pattern and it is so easy - anyone have any idea if i wanted to convert it to a baby size version ( being 6 months prego I am looking for fun, easy baby things to knit ) - I am not good enough at calculations to figure out how to make the switch from Full adult size to baby size - Any ideas? I bet a baby size one would knit up in just a few hours.....:-) My kind of knitting
That's a good thought, many people have made them for their daughters or granddaughters. You could use thin baby sport yarn and smaller needles and follow the pattern for number of stitches and rows. If you have some baby clothes already, especially 6 mo - 1 year size, measure from the neck to the bottom of the armhole for that measurement, and across the back just under the sleeve, then make yours the same size. It might take a few tries to experiment and get the sizing right, but for baby clothes, they keep growing anyway, so a little larger wouldn't hurt.
