I have forgotten how little they come. This little jacket started off life two sizes larger… I was convinced my 18 month old nephew must be that size by now! Halfway up the back, a sneaking suspicion overtook me that I might have misjudged the size I needed to knit. A quick call to my sister confirmed the fact. Rip, rip!
Small knits are super fast to knit. So small, soooo cuuuuute!!
It still needs a zip, but essentially, it’s done.
This is a Naturally NZ Yarns pattern by the number N1087. I’ve knitted it in The Wool Company’s natural mid-brown 100% New Zealand Corriedale yarn, a DK weight yarn. I needed just over 200g to knit the smallest size (to fit a 2yr old).
The pattern is a goodie – you get instructions for all of 8 ply (DK), 10 ply (worsted) and 14 ply (chunky) weights, and the instructions come for both jacket and a sweater in sizing ranging from 2 yrs – 52″ chest adult! Fantastic!
