can this pattern be change in a way to make a skirt. i have a picture in my mind of a skirt for a newborn but not the skill to work one out on my own. i've been tweaking patterns to no avail. :(

HI Daisy, I would try this: on the row where you would join it, don't, and maybe work 2 dc in each stitch to get a little flare or try *1dc, 2dc in next st around* for less of a flare, then just dc around until it is as long as you like. Have fun!!

Could you make this pattern 4 12 month olds? Any comments or tips for a 10 yr old trying to make this for her little cousin?
