2010 - FO 2


Here is the little tunic styled top I knit up for our friends who had a little girl a week early at the start of January!

Pattern: Design C Tunic
Book: Sirdar Seaside Babies 352
Started:  January, finished last night
Yarn:  Heirloom Whisper (acrylic)
Size: 1 to 2 years

I only used about 2.5 balls for this little top I think.  It really does look more like a 6-12 month size though as I used this yarn to destash instead of using some Sirdar yarn.  I dont know what happened to my pattern but those eyelets around the top row are supposed to be spread around the neckline.  I must have read it wrong but I like it the way it turned out, it still looks cute.  Now to give it a little steaming and pop it in a bag ready to gift!  Oh and thank you ladies who helped out with the yarn swift.  I ordered a wooden one today with the advice from Miss Fee - thank you so much.  It is nice to know you can get so much help from your crafty friends isnt it.  They re-open on the 28th of January so I dont really mind waiting a bit!

ADORABLE!! I was picking out some yarn for the same top just the other day for Maddy and was tossing up whether to do this one or the ruffled bolero - too sweet!
Well done - bet it was happily received!!

This is lovely! I think the eyelets on the bodice are really cute and remind me of smocked dresses I had when I was little.
