I’ve gone up a chest size with this - the ribbing pulls the chest in so much that I think if I don’t block the ribbing it will fit for a long time.
Provisional Cast-on with Spare Cable. The first 8 rows set up the pattern after that it is plain sailing.
The first two photos are on my 4 year old, the 3rd photo is her wearing it when she was 3 years old, the last photo is on my 8 year old.
I use safety pins instead of row counters.* Put a safety pin on the button band at the same time as making a button hole. * Put a safety pin on the stst next to a cable crossing.
