Monique finally learned to knit in the summer of 2010 when she signed up for a class. Her grandmother had tried to teach her (no luck) and her college roommates had tried to teach her (also no luck). Paying for a class seemed to finally make something click because by the end of the summer the teacher was showing her advanced techniques and within 2 years she was designing her own patterns.
With a toddler in tow, running a web design company from home became a bit of a handful – especially when said toddler decided that he really liked to bang on keyboards. So Monique decided to start selling her patterns and the rest is history.
Monique has been cross-stitching and sewing since age 3. While she is a great cross-stitcher, her sewing skills hover more around adequate. She also enjoys skiing, dancing, training for her first marathon and playing with her young son, husband and two cats.
About Our Patterns
Our patterns are all knit with plant or synthetic fibers for one simple reason – Monique is allergic to wool! It drove her nuts when she first started knitting that all the “cool” patterns were knit with wool and it was often difficult to find a yarn that would drape the same (ever knit a cotton sweater? You know what we mean!).
A lovely little dress in stockinette stitch, knit from the top down with a bottom floral lace border and picot edge bindoff.
We recommend knitting this beauty in cotton to keep it light and breathable for your little one.May Flowers Dress This pattern uses multiple yarn overs to create the larger circles in the center of the flowers. In the following row, the 1styarn over is knitted while the 2nd is purled.
