  1. That's a perfect shape for a newborn as they tend to be very bulky around the waist because of the nappy. I love the buttons

  2. This is lovely Marianna, do you ever sleep? xxx

  3. Another lovely easy one....personally I would make it shorter to come to the waist as I find they need to be fuller below the waist to accommodate all the padding....:) Love your patterns and cant wait to see the variations people make....

    1. That's why I didn't add buttons all down the front - Caroline. If it is a bit more open there is plenty room for bulky padding. Glad you like it. :)

  4. I checked your abbreviation "yrn" yarn around needle. According to the video I saw "Stitch a Day" it starts from the purl position. Your' s are all knit stitches. Is there a different meaning? How would I do this from a knit position? Or, is this a yo? I know different terms can be used in the UK. Thanks Tancie

  5. PLEASE can you help me to make this pattern larger (for 18 months +)? I love your patterns and have knitted lots of them but now my twin granddaughters are growing up and I need something bigger!! Is there a magic formula to make your patterns larger?!! Thank you

  6. Hi there, as per one of the previous comments, I am confused re the YRN (which is usually used on a pearl row). Should it be YON (as per a knit row)?
    Also, why is there a buttonhole on row 3, when there are only 3 buttons at the top of the garment?
    I would really appreciate a response, as I love the pattern and would really like to make it. Thanks
