Think Big...

Acted small, but it's turning out big again...


My almost forgotten baby blue AJ that was finished in June.

Pattern: Apricot Jacket from Rebecca 27

Needles: 4mm circulars

Yarn: 250g of Softy Cottons from the yarn stall in Causeway

Mods: Substituted DK weight for the worsted, I went with the smallest size and shorten the ribbings on the body a little bit, maybe by 20%

Finished Size: Chest 28", Length 16" (Probably a 3T-4T)

What a great way to mod this pattern! I'd been waiting for you to show it off. I want to try that too!

It turned out so cute. I really need to try this way of downsizing (or upsizing) patterns one of these days :) Jasmine's grown so much, a little lady now, in her mini AJ.

So cute, especially on your little girl!

Oh how cute is that. It looks so sweet on her too, and will fit for quite a long time too.

Mimi said...

So pretty and how clever of you to use a thinner yarn to downsize it! It will soon fit Jasmine, kids grow so fast!
