Another adorable child's sweater - wish it came in other sizes to make my life easier as this would be a great casual top with jeans or a skirt for a child in school or on a class trip to a nature centre but it should not be too difficult to enlarge the pattern (says she optimistically) Reminds me of the old CGIT uniforms --

How cute and perfect for a boy or a girl depending on the colors used and of course the boy. Its such a simple pattern too. I would be tempted to add some pretty star shaped appliques or buttons to the corners of that lovely collar.

Never heard from the designer. I added a few inches here there and managed to come up with a larger size that fits my older grand daughter.

hi ahkimlam, i am about to try this out for my 8 year old granddaughter, have you any advice or tips. I would appreciated it.

So sorry to respond 5 months late. I don't look at this site often unless I plan to knit one of their posted pattern. Since the original pattern instruction is one knitted piece from front to back, it is not too difficult to increase for an 8 yr old. I use other 8 yr old pull over patterns to adjust stitches. I remedied the head area with a piece of triangular piece to make it less big. Hope this helps.

Hi ahkimlam 1132828, We suggest leaving contacting the designer of this pattern on the Knitty website. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Would you be so kind as to give me directions for a Size 4 and Size 6 in this middy? I have two diff size grandkids. I bought exact yarn specified. Have a hunch it will turn out small for my size 2 grandkid - maybe? Thanks.

can you give me directions for a size 4 in this middy

I would LOVE to wear this myself! Anyone translated this into adult sizes?
