Kate Oates is the designer for Tot Toppers & When I Grow Up. She enjoys designing hats and garments for babies and children in particular, these projects often reflect a whimsical spirit. Kate's When I Grow Up line is for those of us who are not tots, featuring a modern classic style. Kate also strives to add specifically to the growing body of knits for boys as she has three of her own! You can find her patterns at your local yarn store or online. She also does freelance work for a variety of publications.
In her non-knitting life, Kate has just finished up a PhD in Political Science from the University of Florida. She lives with her family in South Carolina, which includes husband Ryan, Jesse, Charlie & Oliver (3 very handsome Tot Topper's models) and beloved dogs Cooper and Lou. You might also see the Oates' clan at a Clemson football game. Go Tigers!
A classic design for the little man in your life, this is a short sleeved, lightweight sweater. Sweater features an argyle pattern in front, and a polo-style collar and button placket. The tipped rib on collar, sleeves, and bottom allow for a fun mix of color. It's sized from 0-8 years; you're sure to get lots of opportunity to knit it. And, it's worked in 1 piece for truly minimal finishing.
