I remember a character from my daughters' childhood known as Strawberry Shortcake. She's changed some over the years, but she now wears a newsboy style cap and striped legwarmers. I loved the colors and decided to try to design the cap and legwarmers to go with it. This set can be worn year round! Keep the cast ons for the legwarmers (ankles) loose to ensure they will go over the child's feet. If necessary, go up a size in the knitting needles but follow the same instructions. Feel free to contact me at if something doesn't make sense to you!!!

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
