Little girls need ruffles and lace. They delight in it and we delight watching them prance about in ruffles and lace. This little shawl is fast and easy to make. Conceivably you could knit one to go with every dress in your little girl's wardrobe.
There is a companion pattern, "Mama Ruffles," for the big girls (i.e. adult girls) who would like to prance about in a bit of ruffles and lace too!
5.5 sts / 10 rows - 1" on US #3 wet blocked stockinette stitch.
My mother was a big crafter. I cannot remember a moment when we were not creating something in the kitchen, in the sewing room or on the needles. I have continued that tradition with my own son. He thinks it is quite grand to do a "project' with mommy! And I think it is quite grand to have someone to do a "project" with.
