Old fashioned charm never goes out of style.
Quaintly is beautiful and practical, without being too grown up. Let's keep our little girls exactly that, and not age them before their time.
Quaintly - DK comes written in 16 sizes (from small newborn to approximately 10 years of age), and is written for DK weight yarn.
Quaintly is constructed using a seamless top-down raglan method. The sleeves are worked at the same time as the body in a delicate lace pattern, and then finished before moving on to the body. The chest and sleeves are worked flat, and the body in the round.
The pattern features a mock button band (only the top button is functional; the other 2 are purely decorative).
Lace sleeves are both written and charted.
