    1. Hello Patti.
      I used acrylic yarn bought in the UK and made in Turkey.
      There is no yardage stated on this yarn - but I believe that on average 100g = around 200metres / yards
      The pink top used almost all of a 100g ball - 96g - so you need around 200 yards
      The bigger white top used 126g - so you need around 250 yards
      Hope this helps! Happy Knitting. Marianna

  7. Hello those are beautiful. Can i ask what yfwd means :) thank you

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello kropka
      yfwd means ' yarn forward' . In the UK this means that you wrap the yarn over the needle making an extra stitch.
      You may know this as yarn over needle,
      Hope this helps!

  14. I've gone over the pattern before making it and come upon a confusing row. "Row 5 Knit to last 3sts, yrn, k2tog, k1" I knit using American terms so this has me confused. I looked it up on Google and YouTube and every reference to it and every video had the "yrn" happening on the purl side of the garment. Everyone said "yrn" is only done on the purl side and YO or yarn over is done on the knit side. So you can see my confusion. Could you explain this for me? Thank you.

    1. Its just to make the button hole ..so it wouldn't really matter what side you made it. Usually its right for a girl and left for a boy ..hope that helps you,

    2. bonjour
      tres joli votre petit top

      pouvez vous faire la traduction en français , car je ne comprends pas trop les termes du tricot
      je vous remercie par avance

    3. So in this case yrn can be replaced by yo. Correct?

  18. Hi Marianna,

    I have just been knitting up this lovely cardigan for my little one. It is such a beautiful pattern. I was wondering if you would mind me using your patterns to sell what I make if I include a link to the patterns used so your still getting the credit for the design.
    I totally understand if not.
    Thank you for reading.

  20. Thank you so much. I am knitting this in Ice Yarns Maggic Glitz pink shades for a special little princess!

  21. Hi Marianna I wonder if you could help me please. I am part of a group who knit for a children Orphanage out in South Africa and we love your All-in-One Top and do this for the prem/newborn babies all the time. What I was wondering is if you could adapt your pattern to include sleeves. The sleeveless top is perfect for the summer months but the winter months get very very cold and having some sleeves would really help to keep the babies warm. I hope you can help. Many Thanks. Chris

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hello Chris. I am delighted that you like my design.
    Others have asked for this too - and I am planning to include a version with sleeves in a couple of weeks.
    Best Wishes and Happy Knitting. M

  30. Thanks so much for sharing this pattern. It is adorable. I have made several sweaters and a hat in the smaller sizes but am now working on the largest (size 4-6) and cannot get the following to come out correctly. On row 45, I end up with 7 stitches, instead of 9. I've tried and tried but cannot get this to work out. Can you help?

  33. Hello, I knitted this for my granddaughter and now my own ten year old daughter wants one too! I thought I saw this pattern rewritten up to age 10 somewhere but am starting to think that I dreamt it!
    Can anyone help me out?!

  36. Dear Marianna,
    Thank you so much for these beautiful patterns ☺ I've just completed a small top and hat for my new grandchild expected in Jan '16. It looks lovely and I'm now attempting one for big sister aged 4yrs (not to leave her out)
    I'm terminally ill and find knitting very relaxing and satisfying, I hope to start using your pattern for our local premature baby charity in the New Year, God willing, again thank you, you've given me a purpose and joy ☺

  37. Thank you very much for sharing this beautiful pattern. I started making one this afternoon for my daughter and I love the easy to follow instructions and the fact that I don't have to size up or down with my needles and that it's knit all in one piece.

  40. Thank you so much for this adorable knitting pattern. I'm onto my second one without sleeves and next I want to knit one with sleeves. Can you tell me how you knitted the sleeves on a straight needle? The last time I knitted a baby's cardigan, top down, I had to use DPN's to finish the sleeves. Thank you again.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Knitted the 1-3 size and am very happy with it but it is a little big for my one year old granddaughter. She is tiny so now knitting the 9-12 months size. Just love it. Did you ever get around to making the pattern with sleeves as I can't find it on your blog. Here's hoping?
