The Little Rascals Patterns

Yesterday I released The Little Rascals! The Little Rascals e-book is a collection of 3 unisex, easy to knit, seamless (topdown) and versatile patterns. They’re great for wearing out and about and for mucking around in the backyard.

Within New Zealand, Coco Kids hold the exclusive rights to knit any of these for sale. Feel free to contact myself, Ali or Kate if you'd like to order one.

The Little Rascals are all v-necked garments (which makes popping on a bib easy if necessary)

Little Hoodlum (jersey), Hotshot (vestee), Young Einstein (jacket/cardigan)

There are a variety of options included in the pattern:
- knitting a hood or collar
- moss/seed or garter stitch edge
- how to knit a contrast band around the edge
- wide sleeves or tapered

Sizings range from newborn up to 10 years (15-28 inch chest)

The patterns can be knit in either 8ply/DK or 10ply/worsted weight

The pattern also includes a printer friendly version at the end - so it’s possible to download the full pdf with all the info and pretty pictures, but if you prefer to save paper and ink simply print the last few pages of the pdf.

You can purchase the pattern by clicking the buy now button on my 'Patterns' page here, or via Ravelry here

The price is $7USD and purchases are made via paypal. You'll be sent a pdf of the pattern.

You can contact me if you have any other questions about the pattern or purchasing it. I am able to email it to purchasers with NZ bank accounts who'd prefer to pay via internet banking.

Coco Kids are also available for custom orders for any of The Little Rascals - feel free to contact any of the Coco Kids team to enquire about getting one knit for you.

Lifetime Cottage Licenses are available for a one-off small fee (however they're not yet available in NZ) - please email me for more information if you are interested in knitting these to sell.


  1. I have just finished printing mine off and cant wait to start, might do the Little Hoodlum first. It will be perfect for winter.

  2. SO CLEVER! So So clever! Wow! I will buy :-)

  3. Congratulations Julia, great to see this come to fruition.

  4. And now I know why you don't suggest raglan sleeves as a variation! It still turned out really cute, but it was complicated!

  5. I just love the hotshots vest. My little man looks so super cute in it. I have mentioned your fantastic pattern on my blog NZ Ecochick: Thanks for the great pattern. Madeleine.
