I've always loved little girls in ruffles and lace; they look so sweet. This cardigan has a delicate picot edging on the hem, sleeves and collar, resembling gathered lace. The smooth and simple stockinette stitch provides a wonderful background for the texture of the embellishments. The cardigan is closed with button tabs which grow out of sweet little bows on the center front bands. The garment is designed with 2" of positive ease making this an easy comfortable sweater to wear and grow with your child. A fun sweater in which to dress your precious little girl.

I am a self taught designer, having spent many hours researching and reading about the skills needed to learn clothing design. Having had much experience sewing, gave me a lot of knowledge about how clothing is constructed, which is an essential skill in being able to design. Experience knitting, gave me the tools I needed to master knitting techniques and be able to shape the fabric in the way I want. Learning is an ongoing pastime, there are always new techniques to master. I design clothing for children up to about 10 years and also adults. I have been published in Universal Yarns, Willow Yarns, One Skein Wonders for Babies, as well as various online magazines and self published designs.
