Also it was cold this morning, thus the layering, I hope to get another photo soon, but them kids are so fast sometimes. :-)
Pattern : improvised
Yarn: Tahki Bunny Print (on sale at WEBS) in pinks (#023)
Needles: US9 Denise circular
Construction: Child with 22” chest.
CO 44sts (48 is better as it is evenly divisible by 12).
Join in the round and garter for ~1”.
Increase 12 sts every other round until you have 144sts around.
Continue till you run out of yarn or to desired length.
Do a few rows in garter and bind off.
I think it might work even better if you decrease a handful of stitches the row prior to the garter row. This should reduce the flaring, as garter stitches are usually wider than stockingnet. I will do that next time!
