Misselthwaite is a knitted pinafore inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic novel, "The Secret Garden".
View A is more streamlined, with a narrower skirt and crisp seed stitch edging. View B features a romantic full skirt with deep pleats, moss stitch edging and optional pockets.
Both views are perfectly adorable over a dress for a look full of old fashioned charm. Or over a shirt with leggings or even jeans for a funky, modern look with a touch of whimsy!
20 stitches and 28 rows over 4 inches in stockinette stitch
When I was pregnant with my first child I had a strong desire to make him something by hand. Prior to that I had a background in the arts, but I'd never really learned much about handcrafts. With my baby an obsession was born and four children later, it's still going strong!
