  1. I love this pattern so much, but do you have this pattern in smaller sizes?


  2. Thank you for your interest in this pattern. I’m afraid that I don’t have it available in smaller sizes.

  3. Jince Says:

    Hello, I Love this pattern. Can we make this for a baby boy?


  4. Absolutely! It was originally designed for a boy……..and because it’s double breasted, it doesn’t really matter which side the buttons are on!

  5. Jince Says:

    Hi, I want to make this sweater for a 2 yr old. I have medium (4) yarn and J (6.0mm) crochet hook. Any suggestions.thanks in advance.


  6. I think for a 2 yr. old……start with an G/4mm hook and the #4 yarn. This is the size chart that I use: http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/childsize.html ……if you find the gauge with an G hook is too small, you could switch to a H/5mm hook. I think the J/6mm hook will work out too big.

  7. Jince Says:

    Hi carol, is it possible to do Hdc in back loop. Will that change the sweater sizing?


  8. I don’t see why not. It would make it a little larger, but I’m not sure by how much. It may just affect length. You could also move up to a G hook, that would also work for both width and length.

  9. Sarah Says:

    I have to say I got very stuck on this sweater I don’t know what you mean by back or right front or left front, it was very confusing for me to understand. I would really appreciate it if you send me an email to explain it more clearly for me and I could send an email back with a photo of the sweaterwhere I went wrong.


  10. email on the way.
