i agree - it's beautiful!  I really liked that pattern but dismissed it due to my daughter being at the top end of the age range, although she is small.  I too would be interested to know if you adapted the pattern.

Thanks for all the nice comments  Grin

Since the pattern is only up to 4 years old I simply kept knitting until the circle was wide enough and it was time to BO for the sleeves. The number of stitches you bind off is always the number of stitches you have between the increases! So you can use any yarn you like, make it any size you want! It's very easy to see this when you have started knitting and see how the pattern turns out!  Wink

Sizing is easy on this pattern because it's a circle. Just measure your child across the shoulders to determine how wide the cirde should be at the sleeves, then keep going until it's wide enough to fit around him/he for the finished size. With maybe a few extra inches for growth....

You can also make this a little larger by using larger needles, like a size 10.

yeah larger needles would work, hopefully it wouldn't take away from the pinwheel design though.
