    Thanks so much for featuring my pattern : ) I drew it on a grid and used a basic cardigan pattern and just knit it on the back as I went. My current project is a pattern book for a bunch of soft toys. Then I plan on knitting the sweaters the kid wears in The Shining. xo

    This looks amazing! Is there an adult version of it? Also, can the grid be adapted to anything? Thanks!
