Aladdin Sane Sweater – David Bowie looks great on this teeny toddler.

UPDATED FEBRUARY 2016 – get the chart!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been listening to David Bowie all day … it’s his 66th birthday today AND he gave us all an added surprise with the release of a new single/video, “Where Are We Now”.

So in honour of two of my favourite past-times (listening to Bowie and knithacking), I present the Aladdin Sane Sweater, made by Karla Courtney (follow @karlacourtney), mum of The [Tiny] Times:

  1. 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

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