Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Circular & flat knitting, rib, beginner lace with chart & written instructions. Increase & decrease,

Pattern Description:

A delicate top for a girl that loves comfort. The rib bodice will expand with your child as she grows and allow free movement when playing in the warmer months. The top can be dress length for a younger child & as she grows it will become a tunic top. The lace is simple yet effective & with the addition of a ribbon tie it will dress up well for a party or special occasion. Your Annie Gray can have fixed straps or buttons for the straps to customise fit, ribbon or no ribbon and a singlet top or a babydoll tunic dress.

My Nana was a talented and prolific knitter who knitted for many a tourist and local as they visited her at the small craft market in my hometown. This pattern is named in her honour - Annabel Hewett nee Gray. Nana passed on tips & tricks to my Mum (her daughter in law) and in turn passed this information on to me. There was one jersey that all three of us worked on so Nana and her knitting skills are to be thanked!
