But only when you you have your own little Miss model first, ah the joys of knitting for children your own child's size. This is one for the many swaps I have been working on. The pattern is an original, as in I cast on for the ruffle and made my way up the top. I have knit this style top many times before, and I always mean to write the pattern down but I never do, it is on my to do list, I swear. It is your basic 3x ruffle done in the round, decreased up for the body, extra decreases at the sides to make it a bit swingy. This version has seed stitch panels with Icord ties. Knit with the old Sugar and Cream stand by with a matching cute little yarn over half square kerchief with crochet ties (warshrag modified - ha!)I'm a few days late with this swap, so of course the top needs to be blocked. The Divine One looks like she has a huge giant head, which she sort of does but I don't think it really is as big as it looks in this photo. The top is off to live with a super sweet little Redhead 3 year old, I hope the mama likes what I have made for her. They were not expecting the kerchief so I hope it is a fun surprise.
I was starting to think that we should rename the blog something like 'I-95' knitting, but I see a few of you have come out of the knit work, I slay me. I've been thinking a lot about our sweet little Miss d and her mama Melissa, strong heart thoughts to them.
