Hello! Thanks for visiting my profile! My name is Lauren and I have a passion for fashion and knitting. I have been knitting since I was 9, and working as a fashion designer in NYC since 2005.
Girly Knits is all about fun, fashion, color, and humor, and bringing out your girly cuteness! While most of my designs are originally intended for women and teens, many of my patterns now include girls sizes as well :) I put the utmost care into my patterns to make them customizable, easy and entertaining to read, and make sure to include lots of pictures and resources to make your knitting experience fun!
I regularly blog about the awesomeness of knitting at knittingisawesome.com, and have an active facebook page (facebook.com/girlyknits) where I post contests, polls, and fun knitting related things. I would love for you to join in and be part of the community! You can also keep up to date with my monthly newsletter which you can sign up for at girlyknits.com - by signing up you will will also get a coupon code to get my pattern Dressed Up in Love for free :)
I hope you enjoy my designs, and if you would like to get in touch, please e-mail me at email@example.com. Would love to hear from you!
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream during the Summer? Vanilla with multicolor sprinkles? Mint with chocolate sprinkles? Plain chocolate? Show it off in this super fun perfect for Summer t-shirt! Made with Knit Picks Comfy Sport, it is not only knit with a lightweight cotton yarn, it is soft, comfy, and machine washable too! The ice cream intarsia chart is a blast to knit and wear, and the bows on the back offer some flirtiness and flair. Adorn the bows with your favorite buttons and your back will be the talk of the town. Enjoy!
This top is knit as one piece back and forth from the bottom up, and calls for a circular needle to accommodate all of the stitches. The ice cream chart requires approximately 14 yards of each color for the cone and ice cream. I used Comfy Sport for the main color and CotLin for the Ice Cream and Cone. The sprinkles can be made using scrap pieces of yarn, I used Patons Grace in Lotus, Wildberry, Orchid, Sunkissed, Lemon Lime, and Aquifer! The Ice Cream chart is 27 sts wide and 68 rows high. You could use another chart of a similar size if you wish, this unicorn would work and be quite fun! ;)
The bows on the back are added after the top is knit, and the pattern has instructions for knitting bow centers (shown on purple version) or using buttons (shown on teal version).
"With Sprinkles on Top" is part of the "Boardwalk Beauties" collection, a collection of 5 awesome summery Girly Knits patterns for only $16! Check out the details of the other fabulous patterns included within this collection here:
