    2. Can you post pattern for 9 months?

      Delete
  5. I'd like a 6-9 months version of the jacket and I have a 5mm wool; do you think knitting the 3 months version with the 5mm wool would fit a 6-9 month version?

    my gauge is 17 s and 20 rows = 10 cm = 4"

    1. Did you try it? Should work OK for this pattern as it gives exact numbers of rows, not measurements. You could work out the finished size by comparing tensions but hey, babies grow quickly, it will fit at some point!
