I'm thinking of making a smaller version of the Anthropologie-Inspired Capelet for my 8-year-old niece.  Has anyone else scaled this down?  Any advice?  I'm very bad at swatching, it turns out, so I'm a little nervous about it.

You can use the basic pattern with smaller needles and thinner yarn. Or just start with less CO stitches, apportion sts for the fronts, sleeves and back the same and knit until it fits her.

look though the KAL and you'll see a few kid sized versions.

I did one for my 6-nearly 7 yr old  daughter using worsted weight yarn and the recommended needles for the yarn (can't remember exactly what without checking).....  but it worked really well....

I also did one using Bernat softee chunkee but did less increases in the raglans for my almost 9 year old - again worked well........

no real pattern adjustments - just worked with the pattern and measured the size the armholes needed to be..

this is an easy peasy pattern so go for it!

yeah- I went to a worsted weight and size 10 needles and it was perfect for my daughter.  its a great pattern for "adjusting"!  go for it!  definitely check the KAL for inspiration.
