This pattern is for both a sailor boy collar top and the ruffled skirt. The top has 3/4 length sleeves and a sailor boy collar. It is done in an allover corn stitch pattern. The trim on the collar and the tie are optional. The skirt is done with a ruffled hemline that continues to the waist in a ribbed pattern. It has an elastic waist.
The styling is vintage looking. It was designed after several requests for age appropriate outfits for little girls.
I have been knitting for the past 50 or so years. When I retired I started to design my own patterns. I believe that a knitted item can be modern, comfortable and stylish.
This is my goal. I'm thoroughly enjoying this time in my life. As a knitter I enjoy the comradery of the forum on Knitting Paradise.
I am a designer/teacher member of the Knitting Guild Association.
