So I doubled this pattern and it is pretty darn big on my almost 2 year old boy. We are dubbing it the “Tunic” and I think we may turn it inot his halloween costume this fall- Just needs a belt/sword, a helmet and boots and there you have it- King Arthur!

The good part is that it will fit for a long time and if I need a go to girls gift, this is a perfect little sweater dress.

Next time I would make the button holes a bit bigger to fit larger buttons, or leave them off and just knit in the round.

I will update these alterations soon!
