Thanks for the comments! The $6 spent on the pattern has been well worth it -- especially since you receive as a PDF, and if you cut the pattern down to one of the smaller sizes, you can still reprint to use for the larger sizes!

Discovered this "market skirt" pattern online, with free tutorial: http://www.dana-made-it.com/2008/07/tutorial-market-skirt.html. Love it! Big kudos to the author for the friendly tutorial with simple steps and fabulous photos. Here are 2 finished items I've made from this tutorial (fits about a 2T-3T):

Purchased this pattern from Leila & Ben (via Magpie Patterns). Adore it, and have now made 4 of them, in 3 different sizes. Great piece that can serve as a dress, tunic, top as the child grows...

Adorable! Love the colors and the styles. Fantastic job. (I also love your "clown vomit" analogy -- so true!) Awesome!

Wow -- adorable! Love the colors, and it's a great fit on the bear. I'm sure it'll look fabulous on its intended recipient, too. Great job!

Ooh! Will have to check out Boheme Mama! Thanks so much for the tip, KnitPurl.

As for making this pattern gender-neutral, I think that this article is so specifically designed for girls, that in order to alter it to be appropriate for a baby boy, it would be a different sweater altogether. That being said, I think you could probably modify the basic pattern to leave out the lacework (just do straight stockinette) below the garter stitch neck & sleeves, and leave out the picot edging along the bottom, and choose some neutral buttons, and you'd have something that might work for a baby boy. Otherwise, I think it'd be wise to find a nice neutral cardigan pattern that could go either way.

Current challenge is to find a pattern that will enable me to knit one of these in adult size. Very versatile piece!
