I made this Smockie with CottonTots (which might have been a mistake). I started it in June before the Big Move thinking I might knit in the car during our four day drive, but that didn't happen.  So I just finished it and got buttons for it. I learned to knit when I was 7 or 8, but I never knit an entire garment before...or followed a knitting pattern. I picked this one for its simplicity...but I'm not real thrilled with how it turned out.  I knit the 1-2 size (kiddo's in size 2), but it's SO wide that she'll be wearing it till she's 6 (as a shirt instead of a dress).  Oh well, live and learn!

That is super cute and your daughter is adorable!! I like the colors.  I think it came out great, it is big on her but you could put a little belt or tie a sash around her waist to cinch it in a little.  I love it!

at least it came out bigger than smaller right?!?! that's the good thing about knitting/crocheting for kids- if it's big they can wear it FOREVER!!! anyways, thanks for the pattern, i've been wanting to knit something like this for my one year old daughter for AGES!!! yours turned out super cute- super cute top for a super cute little girl!!

Definitely better too big than too small!  Right now it's too broad in the shoulders, so it falls down when she wiggles (and boy, does she wiggle!), but I like the idea of a belt or sash. I might try running a bit of ribbon through the knitting to pull it in a bit.

The pattern was a bit confusing...I think there were a couple of typos so that it says to make the front twice, but you should be able to figure it out! (Hey, I did and it's the first knitting pattern I followed!) :-)
