My sister Just turned 7 and started first grade, so I wanted to make her something that is easy to care for and easy to use. I decided to knitted her a skirt. She have had a purple phase and hoping it will stay for a while, I made it purple. The pattern is from Sandnes hefte 1509 it’s in Norwegian (sorry folks) I used Cascade 220 superwash, It was the first time I used cascade yarns and it was great to work with, being superwash the yarn did have a bit of a plastic feeling about it but it was not more then expected from a superwash yarn. I’m really pleased with the result and think that the finished product is fun and suitable for a 7 year old.
I expected this to be a vey quick knit and it did take a bit longer then I estimated and to be honest it wasn’t the most exciting thing to knit but well worth it, the best bit in my opinion is the colourwork section in the middle it really gives something to the design and was fun to knit. Both the hem and the waistband it folded over and sewn down, this gives a very crisp finish to the skirt, the waist band have an elastic inside to you won’t have to worry about it sliding down since the elastic gives that extra structure to allow play and running around climbing trees or monkey bars.
The cardigan in the first picture is latte baby coat.
