Kerrera for kids is a baby/child sized version of my Kerrera pattern. The baby sizes have no body shaping, no pockets and the buttons go all the way down the buttonband. The older child sizes are the same in shape to the original Kerrera.

There are 10 sizes available for this pattern.
The pattern comes as a PDF file and is 10 pages long. The pattern is written in a table format where you fill in the requisite numbers.
