Love this sweater and would really like to make it for my boy. I'm not confident enough with crochet to translate into smaller size. Any chance the designer can work it down to 8, 10 , 12 y.o. sizes?

This correction is INCORRECT. When switching from color C, it goes back to the MC, color A, NOT color B. THERE IS NO COLOR B IN ROUND 12. Only the MC, color A and color C.
