Toddler Play Suit
Something warm to wear in cooler weather. I located this interesting pattern on line.....made some accomodations and went for it with left over yarn: Elisabeth Verden - wooly jumpsuit/Drops Design. I recommend this pattern because it was easy to understand and it was fun to knit.

More hats for craft fairs coming up
Btw I am now making my own faux fur poms. Bought fur material at Joanne’s and learnt on You Tube “how to”. I am a bit nervous for these craft fairs as I am not sure what reaction I will receive as I live in a very rural place who are not up to the latest Trends!!! Spent a small fortune on yarns so far 🥺

sizing help fish and chip please
HI Ladies I need to pick you brains. I am knitting Fish and chip tops for up to 3 to 4 month babies. I dont have a baby to measure. The top I have mostly completed looks huge. I have used yarn and needles that are recommended in the pattern. 4.5mm

Can some one give me and idea of what the 1) width at the bottom should be, 2)the width about 1/2 way up the middle section,3) the full length and 4) depth of the arm hole section.
Also if I am knitting this in the round from the bottom to the armhole should I decrease the number of stitches from 44x2=88 as I will have no seams? should I decrease 4 stitches? ( will keep to double rib pattern) Thanks for your help.
anything else you think I need to know would be appreciated

Help with Sashay
I have been on KP all day and have to quit for now and go watch football which is my Saturday bad from August until it finishes. To make up for the time waste, I knit while I watch and the more excited I get the faster I knit. So I need help. I am going to make Sashay scarves for Christmas presents. They no longer sell, I understand, but I know people who would still like to have one for Christmas.

I need t link to the best YouTube tutorial for Sashay scarves and also any tips from you experts as to what to avoid and what to do. I am also considering hiding a hook and eye in the ends to enable the user to fasten it and make it a cowl. Surely someone else has done this or has a way to do it that will make it more flexible. TIA to all you wonderful, helpful KPers. MN
