I have a new favourite baby girl pattern - The Elizabeth Tunic. Not only is it a quick an easy - but not boring - knit that can be adapted in a variety of ways, but the final garment is an extremely practical and wearable item. The dress becomes a tunic top as the child grows and can be knitted in a variety of yarns for either summer or winter wear.
Hannah is modelling the 3-6 month size, knitted on Jolly Jumbuck Black Rainbow BFL Aran. Bellow is the 6-12 month size, knitted on Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 10-ply in the colourway 'Where the Wild Things Grow" dyed by Cordu of Wooltopia. It's for Sonya's daughter Georgia and will eventually make its way back to Hannah once she has outgrown it.
A third version that uses the remaining Wild Things yarn plus some purple Dream In Colour is almost finished.
And here is Georgia modelling the seamless kimono top.
Georgia will also get first wear of the Flapper Dress, made in the smallest size (1) as a test knit for designer Shannon Passmore.
Finally, a a bunny yarn winter set - hat, fingerless mitts and small moebius neck warmer made out of 175g of Ixchel Angora bunny/merino yarn.
