Notes

Second try, as the first one was way to small for my petite 8 month old, even with 1 mm larger needles than called for.

CO 108, BO 8 at each side for arm holes and CO 25 on each side over the shoulder.

Added 1 cm to the length of the body as well, but turned out a bit to short after all… Maybe because my gauge is so off so the yoke is shorter.

Neck shaping as follows (k 3 rows between as in original pattern):
k2, k2tog, “k6, k2tog” (x17), k2 (124 sts left)
k1, k2tog, “k6, k2tog” (x15), k1 (108 sts)
k1, k2tog, “k5, k2tog” (x15) (92 sts)
k3, k2tog, “k5, k2tog” (x12), k3 (79 sts)
k3, k2tog, “k4, k2tog” (x12), k2 (66 sts)
k2, k2tog, “k8, k2tog” (x6), k2 (59 sts)
BO
