At long last, I've finally finished this pattern!
The Double Breasted Toddler Jacket is the final for-sale pattern for 2023. It's as easy as it is cute. The design was inspired by Maurice Sendak’s illustrations in his books What Do You Say, Dear? and What Do You Do, Dear? It’s a perfect last minute knit, since it works up using bulky yarn and 10 ½ (6.5 mm) needles. While the shaping is very simple, the sleeves are a bit different, in that they are worked from the shoulder down to the cuff, with the stitches picked up off the body of the jacket. This pattern comes with instructions for both boy’s and girl’s jackets and 18 month, 2T, and 3T sizes. While the buttons all work, the neck is big enough and the jacket elastic enough that it can function as a pullover.
