This is so cute! I wonder how to increase it to fit an adult. How many stitches would be needed in the beginning?
Thanks!!

OK I'm a fairly new chrocheter. what do Bpdc and Fpdc mean?
 
Back Post Double Crochet and Front Post Double Crochet.
 
This is a great pattern, I have made it and it looks fantastic. I have tried researching how to enlarge it with out changing my needle size.. would you happen to know how to convert it bigger to 6-9 months for I cannot finger it out. Your answer would be a great help to me.
 
I haven't tried it, but if I was going to I would add 1 ch for each front, 2 ch for the back and 2 for each of the sleeves for a total of 8 additional chains. Then I would work a coiple extra rows before dividing for the sleeves and then a couple extra for the length to the body.

If you try it let me know how it goes for you.
 
Thanks for your feed back. i will indeed let you know how it goes.

thanks again
 
It Worked great.
Thank you very much for your help!
 
That's terrific, thanks for letting me know.
 
This pattern is brilliant, I've just started making it and I'm enjoying, its just so clever and simple. thank you!
 
I made this in a bit larger size for my granddaughter-- it looks terrific! (It fits her perfectly too!). This is a real "go-to" pattern. You can easily make it into a long sleeved sweater as well! Thanks.
 
I'd like to enter the sweater I made for my granddaughter in a craft show in late 2016 - (hoping to win first prize). I notice that I need to ask for permission: may I do so?
 
Yes it is okay to enter for a prize.
