PATTERN DETAILS

Aria is a fun tunic worked in stocking stitch in the round. It has a cute pocket and rib accents at neck and armholes. There are multiple sizes which make it a long lasting versatile garment that can be worn in autumn, winter and spring. When it comes to the armholes I have suggested you use DPNs, but please use your favourite method of working small circumferences in the round. If you search "magic loop" or "2 circulars" on www.youtube.com you will find a variety of excellent video tutorials. I have include a photo tutorial illustrating my way of casting on provisionally. Please use the "child chest" measurement to decide which size to knit, you can adjust the length from ribbing to underarm to suit your child. This pattern has been test knitted and tech edited.

I love designing knitwear for babies and older kids too, I'm inspired by the world around me, whether it's the green bush covered hills where I live, or the bright city lights and sparkling harbor. I try to find a way to incorporate traditional, modern and whimsical elements into every garment I design. Children need to be comfortable and relaxed in their clothing, they need the opportunity to jump and run and paint without restriction. I try to design with these qualities in mind.
