Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic knit/purl rows used with k2tog and inc in next st but instructions are given in detail to help you

Pattern Description:

KARNIVAL KATE is the 2nd summer outfit in my 4 Seasons series...
Reminiscent of the Bank Holiday Carnivals full of bright colours and frilly funky costumes - Karnival Kate is a little different as although a knitted outfit the pattern is meant to appear as if crochet and it has the unusual usage of scarf yarn to make the skirt/romper frills
Can be knitted in just about any 4ply/fingering/fine sport yarn
This set comprises of 2 outfits ...

You have the Romper Set with all-in-one short Romper, Sunhat & Shoes
And the Dress Set with Dress, Sunhat & Shoes

Again very popular, trendy and bright - knitting the scarf yarn in is very easy once you start and a lot like knitting in lace

Hope you enjoy it :)
