We live in Florida, where it's not uncommon for children to take swim lessons through October. Still, I don't want Cole to get chilled after exiting the pool. Enter Made's Beach Robe pattern.
It wasn't the easiest pattern to make, and it certainly was a messy project. However, I do love the end result, and so does Cole.
Although my son is five, I cut a 4T. I did add one inch to the sleeve length and five inches to the robe length. There's still a bit of room to grow, and, with luck, the robe will also be usable next swim season.
Thanks for the great pattern, Dana!
