The yarn was dyed by me using food colouring and a large slow cooker!
On the whole I think the pattern was a good beginner pattern. The stockinette sections were easy to knit although the moss stitch was mind-numbingly boring at times! I like how it looks though :-) My son is an average sized 4 year old and the pattern fits about right. It is on the narrower side so I don't know if he'll be wearing it next winter. Luckily he has two younger siblings it can get passed down to!
I'm not sure if I will knit this pattern again. If I do I'll probably add some cables or some sort of interesting stitch pattern to make it a bit more challenging. I probably won't make the bigger size but I might make a Neverland Wendy for Ava when she's a bit bigger :-)
I think he likes it though!
