    1. It is Sirdar snuggly pattern 3266 and is still available. I made it for all my kids, now in their 40s and have made it for grandkids.

  5. Jan did you find out what the yrn and tbl stand for? I am thinking yrn means yarn but unsure.
    Thanks

  7. Yrn is the same as yarn over (yo). It creates the little eyelet hole. Tbl means through back loop, so knit your stitch by putting your needle through the back loop of the needle.

  9. S stands for "slip". Slip this stitch instead of knitting or purling.

    1. DK is double knitting yarn...a UK measurement...8 ply in Australia and I believe it is the same as light worsted in America :)

  13. How would I resize this for a 6 month old with a 17 inch head? Maybe closer to a 20 inch head since she won't get it till Christmas? Like, how many stitches would I initially cast on? Thank you!

    1. I think you multiply the 20" by your gauge stitches per inch. That should be your number of cast on stitches. My granddaughter is the same age, so I'm going to try it and see. Good luck!
