I like this pattern best, but I need it in a size 14 or 16

This is really REALLY cute. Since I don't crochet (yet) I've got to save it and am thiking about adding rows of gingham ruffles or fringe to a purchased (at the thrift store), sweater or sweatshirt. The fringes I could make even INTO the plain sweater. I thought of rows of chennel too. This is a cute keeper.

I love the lttle girl's sweater....I know some little girls who will love this and I will definitely enjoy making it. Thank You for the pattern.

I love the girlie sweater - and all the little girls would love it! However, the little boy sweater is so cute - and there are so few boy sweaters out there. I think I'll vote for the boy sweater.

Great range of colors, perfect for a child. This will be versatile.
