Sprout Child's Tunic

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Sprout Baby Sweater Link to website or photo http://www.classiceliteyarns.com/pdf/SproutChildsTunic.pdf What are you most proud of? Using a bulkier yarn in a child's garment without sacrificing fit or scale. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Rather than stopping the V-neck when the stitch count for the front matched the stitch count for the back, I continued the neckline opening into a little keyhole slit and closed it with a pearl button. The deeper V will make sure that the neck opening is large enough to accommodate a toddler??s proportions. I also increased at the waist, rather than decreasing as I would in an adult design, to make room for a toddler??s belly and diapered bum.
