More knitting updates

Sick of these yet? Only a couple more and I think I’ll be all up to date – next time I won’t leave it so long between posts.

This one features a few different designers, the first one being Rachel Evans.  This one is called the Paige Babydoll is a delightful wee knit that has two different options for the skirt part - a full skirt with two different hems or an A-line cabled skirt.


It is knit in 10ply and available in sizes NB-5.  Another perfect pattern that is perfect for layering in the spring, winter and autumn.  It can also be knit in cotton which would be perfect for the summer.  I’m definitely planning on knitting a couple more of these, just have to buy some more 10ply yarn.

Next up is a design from Shannon Passmore.  Versa can be knit up as a vest, tunic, dress or as a babydoll.  I’ve only knit the pattern as a tunic but have plans to do a couple more of the options when I can find the time.

(Excuse the bad photos – it was hard to get Miss 3 to stand still to take a decent photo.)  This pattern can be knit in either 10ply or 12ply and from sizes NB-10 which makes it an extrememly versatile pattern and great value for money.


Lastly, we have a Charlotte Sweater by Raya Budrevich.  It’s knit in 8ply and can be knit with or without sleeves.  It features a ribbed neck and bodice and with the no sleeves, creates a racer style back. 

There’s a gorgeous little ruffle down the bottom that you can see in the photo below.  Sizing starts at 6m and goes up to a sz 10, this really is a top that is suited for all seasons.
