This sweet little outfit has striped leggings, with little shoes built into the pattern (they won't slip off). Part of the leggings are knitted in single row stripe pattern, which has been fully explained in the instructions together with picture tutorials on how to achieve this technique, no cutting the yarn each time you change colours!! The pop over pinafore top is a quick and easy knit which could also be knitted in a beautiful soft cotton, and worn as a little sun dress in summer. I would class this pattern as a great starting point for knitters who have mastered the art of plain knitting and are ready for a little bit more of a challenge.

I have been knitting and dabbling in various hobbies for as long as I can remember, and love experimenting with different types of yarn. My passion is for designing and knitting baby and childrens patterns - just love to create something new.
I am the designer, graphic artist / desktop publisher, (this is what I did as my day job) writer / editor and photographer of OGE Knitwear Designs.
My absolute ultimate would be to publish a few books, and also have my own brand of yarn, I adore Debbie Bliss yarn, especially Cashmerino, gives such great stitch definition.
I hope that I have produced some patterns that may inspire the young (and old) to knit !! Generally my patterns are for the beginner, I have tried to keep them simple, modern and practical, with a twist of individuality.
I hope you enjoy my designs, your feedback is most welcome!!
