Rose is a sweet coat named after a friend’s grandmother who knitted a similar one over 60 years ago. She is knitted top down and seamlessly.

Size
6–12 months (1–2 yrs, 2–4 yrs, 4–6 yrs)
Chest: 18.5 (22, 25, 29) in / 47 (56, 64, 74) cm
Length: 12 (14, 15, 17)“

Note: Keep in mind that tweaking the gauge gives you more sizing options. For instance, knitting the largest size at 5 sts/inch instead of 4.5 sts/inch will give you a 26.5 in / 67 cm chest.
