  1. The Lollipop sweater sounds like fun to knit. What sizes are possible using the pattern that comes with this video? I would like to make two sweaters for my granddaughters: one for a 4 year-old and one for a 6 year-old.

      3-6 mths (6-12 mths, 2-3 years, 3-4 years, 4-5 years)

      Finished measurements:
