Good for you. It looks beautiful. When I saw it the other day, my thought was that it shows you exactly where to make the increases so it shouldn't be that hard to work out the pattern. Not having anyone to knit one for, I didn't make one but I am glad to see that someone just got to work and figured it out. Congratulations!

Need some details please, what yarn did you use? Weight? Yardage? What age child do you think yours would fit? It's beautiful!!
I ordered some yarn from ebay (http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Lot-of-6-x-50g-balls-Cashmere-Silk-velvet-Children-Hand-Yarn-Yellow-1804-/360885347016?ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:US:3160), so just used that. I guess it can be considered "sport" weight.
The yarn is not what the website claims it is -- I tested by burning and determined it contains polyester. But can accept as it's soft to knit with and the price is so cheap.

Needle size 7 (4.5mm) -- might have been better if I used 4.0mm
yarn: 50g(147yard) per ball -- used almost three balls.

the finished size is pretty big - 17 inches at longest and widest. I don't have any little girl younger than 14 years old (including nieces) so am going to figure out whom to send it to.
