People around the world have fallen in love with the Fosette Crop: the time has come for the wee version for the little sweeties in our lives!

This cute, DK weight tee works up so fast in even adult sizes. The children’s pattern is perfect for a quick baby shower gift or last-minute granddaughter knit. Every size can be worked with less than one skein each of three colors, and the baby sizes can even use scraps!

Pattern Notes

Wee Fosette is a three color, top down, cropped, round yoke pullover with several different colors and textures. It has cap sleeves and a condensed body so it works up super quick! The pattern has approx. 2-4” positive ease.

Sizes: Newborn (6-9 mo, 12-24 mo, 2T-3T) [4T, 5T-6 years, 7-8 years, 9-10 years]

For Chest Sizes: 15 (17, 20, 21) [23, 25, 27, 29]” / 38 (43, 51, 53.5) [58.5, 63.5, 68.5, 73.5] cm

Finished Chest Measurements: 16.75 (21, 22.25, 22.25) [25.25, 28.25, 31.5, 32.75]” / 42.5 (53.5, 56.5, 56.5) [64, 72, 80, 83] cm

The Wee Fosette has a roomier fit than the adult sweater. Since kids grow so fast, this will help it to fit longer!

The best way to choose a size is on chest measurement and age. See schematic for full details.
