I’ve been knitting almost feverishly for the last week and a bit to finish some orders that had come in recently. Completed and delivered them yesterday so know I can concentrate on Christmas.
I was asked to knit this sweet little bolero in a bigger size for a little girl aged 12 months. I used a cream DK yarn which is dappled with pink, as it knitted up it reminded me of rasberry ripple ice-cream! For the eyelet edging I used a matching dark pink yarn to complement the body of the bolero. Pale pink ribbon was threaded through the eyelets which gives it such a pretty effect.
Creamy Baby Duffle Coat
Once the bolero was off the needles I was busy casting on this cute little duffle coat.
I love this pattern, it’s a very simple garter stitch knit which knits up quite quickly. The size is 0-3 months, I was asked to create it in neutral colours as the baby isn’t born yet and the sex is unknown. I opted for a cream colour edged with green, to give it a clean fresh look.
I made some matching little boots to complete the outfit. The baby is due around New Year so hopefully he or she will be kept warm and snug in the new coat.
2013 has been a very busy knitting year which I’ve enjoyed immensely, when I get some time over this Christmas holiday period I must put together a list of projects to be attempted in 2014!!!
