"Pattern shown is sized for a 4-5 year old girl. Pattern worked in one piece except for the collar. Piece measures 12" across the front and back and 15" from shoulder to hem. Can be made with or without buttons just be sure to attach the buttons to the INSIDE of the back panel matching up with the buttonholes. The buttons shown are sparkly iridescent flowers that actually cost more than the yarn! But that would be your own preference. In hindsight I would probably make the collar a little bigger with more rowns for a more dramatic effect."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I got confused after the initial 12 rows of knitting. To continue on, knit 6 sts at either end of row with K1P1 between. With casting on 63 sts and 12 at the ends, it's impossible to do K1 P1 between and have it work out.

A cute knit but as already stated by others Row 15 is incorrect and if you are not an experienced knitter you may not spot this mistake. After the first k3 (yrn k2tog) k2 you should then knit in pattern as per rows 13 and 14 until the last 6 sts and then as per instructions. Then each buttonhole row repeat this. I cast off fairly loosely so this is fine but if you do have a tight cast off you might want to use a stretchy one or switch to larger needles just for this bit. I think it will also be easy to adapt this pattern to make a larger version by increasing the number of stitches and rows but I have not yet tried this.

Such a cute knit! I think Igobleca4382635 is correct in that the buttonhole rows are incorrect. I would also do the super stretchy bind off for the next rows as my bind offs tend to be on the tighter side.

Row 15 does not make sense. Why repeat from to ---this would just make buttonholes across the row.

You are right, I think they're missing the k1 p1 ribbing so k1, p1 should be in between the asterisks

Why in the world can't I copy and print this pastern?

Hello heathermcantrell 9 447824! If you click the "Print" button directly under the title of the pattern, you should be able to easily print the pattern. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I can't understand Row 15. It says to go to the last stitches, but then gives instructions for 7 stitches. Also, work from to doesn't let me end with six stitches left.

I don't understand row 15 either. It appears you are making button holes thru the row. Please clarify

Easy child's pattern Could you show a photo of the front please? I am having a problem with this row 15 is a button hole row. When I got to the last 6 sts the pattern says 'k2,yrn k2tog)knit 3 but there are only 2 left to knit,and it reads as though there are button holes all across the row. lizzie

There is no pattern. I would love to make this for my daughter and nieces. Please update with a pattern soon. I am a new knitter so I am not confident enough to go based off the picture like I would if it were crochet. Thank you.

Thank you!!!!!

Only photo and name no pattern in my file. Where is the pattern?

Hello seshelman48 698953 3! The pattern has been updated with the full instructions. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
