Little Ray of Sunshine

Still kept to the Easter theme this week. This little set is destined as an Easter gift.

I have made this little ribbon-edged bolero many times, it’s a fairly simple pattern knitted in stocking stitch with an eyelet border but it does become quite special when the ribbon is threaded through.

The edging is knitted seperately and attached, I always like to do the edging in a contrasting colour. The body of this bolero is knitted with a dappled DK yarn which gives an almost polka dot effect

It is a pretty little bolero that would team up well with a special little dress. The little Mary Jane shoes are the ones from last weeks post knitted in matching yarn

I thought a little Easter duck would complete the gift set so knitted the mother duck from Jean Greenhowe’s ‘Duck Family’

She stands at about 5 inches, the body is knitted with two strands of DK along with the feet and beak. The bonnet is knitted in 4 ply and as with all of Jean’s patterns fits the little character perfectly.

Must start on my ‘to do’ list for next week. Have a lovely week-end everybody
