looks like a rectangle to me...make it as long as you want, change colors when you want, then stitch up the sides for the "look".

Hmm, is that string across the chest a tie, or a seam?

I would make a rectangle shawl shape and put a keyhole opening (basically a huge buttonhole or slit) for the armhole and sew the sides together. You should look on pattern central for shawl patterns, then you can cheat and use their dimensions so you don't have to guess at how many stitches to cast on.

That's REALLY cute! You have a lucky friend!

This one is kinda sorta similar, you'd have to make the one sleeve shorter and alter the bottom somehow to make it more triangular. :thinking:

This isn't exactly the same, but it would be a good start. I've downloaded this about 4 times planning to make it for my DD.

My vote is for this one to modify. We are voting aren't we? Love the colors of that. Can't to see what you come up with.
