I've promised the mods to the mini-Jaywalker, and here they are! I knit for these for my nieces, ages 4 and 6, so keep that in mind when you're thinking of sizing.I'm trying to work out the pattern, with mods, but I can't actually think tonight (the reason for this is coming in a later post) but basically, I'll give ya the math.
