Colorplay

Many knitters are intimidated by colorwork -- I know I used to be, until very recently! But as it turns out, it only takes a few tricks to get a beautiful result. I think a child-sized garment is always a good choice to venture into a new technique, too!

My Colorplay Dress is meant to be used like a coloring book: consider my own choice of colors as an example, and then just select your own yarns and color away!

When this pattern was tested, it was so incredible to see how different the same design looked depending on how muted or vivid the testers' color combinations were, or how contrasting they were, not to mention the choice of background color or yarn type. You could go from a sweet and traditional schoolgirl look, to a super-bright and modern jumper to wear with glitter sneakers or rain boots ;)

Colorplay Dress calls for sport weight yarn like Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and is available in size 3mo to 8yo. You can purchase it here.

Chuck

Love this little sweater, I’ve been wanting to use this motif for a long time to make a sophisticated “Charlie Brown” sweater, with a big zigzag feature. Of course the motif could be omitted and leave the knitter with a great crew neck sweater template that could be personalized.

I think this will be so adorable on little dudes, but would work for little girls too of course! 
The construction is a breeze, top-down and completely seamless with just a few short rows at the neckline for a more comfortable fit.

Chuck calls for worsted weight yarn like Malabrigo Rios and is available in sizes 3mo to 8yo. You can purchase the pattern here
