Recommended with this pattern

  • We used Coats and Clark, 1 ball (280 yds.) Red Heart Shimmer Yarn, Main Color, (a sport weight yarn, with a glitter accent). Materials for crown and cape: Sequins for crown and optional neckline (We used 8 inches of sequin braid, for blue dress with v-neck detail, and 11 inches of braid for pink and red neckline). Use one ball, plus one ball of Lion brand Fun Fur yarn in white. (64 yds) Knitting needles, size 6, plus double point needles were used as "fasteners" to hold skirt when sewing together. (You could also use safety pins or other clips, but remove all before giving to a child.) 2 small buttons and size G crochet hook for button loops.

Frugal Knitting Haus
The Frugal Knitting Haus was founded in July of 1989. It began around the innovative patterns of our founder, designing quick and simple patterns using up leftover scraps of yarn. Since her start, hundreds of knitting patterns have been designed and are available through the eight different books that are published by the Frugal Knitting Haus. The patterns are all different, but the design concept through the years hasn't changed. The name "frugal" is right on target, given our patterns that use the leftover scraps of yarn, bits and pieces of a skein or less that would otherwise not find a purpose. Whether it is a holiday decoration, a baby blanket or adult afghan, sweaters, bazaar items, toys, hats, slippers, gifts, or just plain useful items for use around the house, you will find it all here. We've put a large number of patterns on our site, to get you started with the "frugal" knitting concept that will surely clean those odds and ends of yarn out of the bottom of your knitting basket.
