Hello! I've just bought the wool, but am getting cold feet about knitting in the round. Would anyone be able to advise me as to how I might convert the pattern for use with ordinary needles? Many thanks.

How do you adapt this pattern for boys?

Love this pattern and am happy to see it can be adapted for both boys and girls. It is so hard to find knitwear for boys other than hoodies. Thank you for designing this one. My two Great Grandsons will be getting this as soon as possible.

I love it!  It is stylish and I think it would appeal to little girls.  Kids can be picky sometimes and I think this breaks through.
