I've renamed this pattern:
Otto Day Cardigan
You can find the adult version (and the story behind it's new name) here: http://threadandladle.blogspot.com/2013/03/amy-day-cardigan.html
I made a sweet little short sleeve sweater (Quince & Co. Osprey, color parsley) that was oh so sweet! But he grew out of it in a minute. So I knit up another in Cascade's Eco Wool.... it's quite lovely, easy to get on and comfy, and keeps those hands free for all the trouble my wee one gets into all these days.

On a side note, does anyone know how difficult it is to get a one year old to cooperate? Not the best model. A few outtakes for fun, shall we?
