Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • I-Cord
  • knitting-in-the-round
  • crochet - single, double and half-double

Pattern Description:

I remember a character from my daughters' childhood known as Strawberry Shortcake. She's changed some over the years, but she now wears a newsboy style cap and striped legwarmers. I loved the colors and decided to try to design the cap and legwarmers to go with it. This set can be worn year round!

Keep the cast ons for the legwarmers (ankles) loose to ensure they will go over the child's feet. If necessary, go up a size in the knitting needles but follow the same instructions.
