I had to pull over by the side of the road this week and take a photo of these beauties. Spring arrived a little late for all of us this year, so a full bed of blossoms just took my breath away and made me stop the car!
And because I have yarn on the brain, I was immediately inspired to try to figure out how I could knit something that could in some way capture all this beauty. The dasies’ bright fresh colors made me think of the beautiful lemon yellow hand painted skeins of Spinnery Simply Fine that we have in the shop.
They have been calling out to me all week as the perfect choice for a little dress. I did a bit of searching on Ravelry and found a generous selection of almost 40 patterns that could be knit up with a single 450 yard skein. (This of course is contingent on the size of the pattern you select).
Among my favorites are two of the most popular patterns in the group:
This is Tora Frøseth’s Little Sister Dress. The FREE pattern covers a size range from 3 to 24 months. And the dress could work as a little tunic over tights which could extend its wearability beyond 2 years.
And next is the Rio Dress designed by Taiga Hilliard. It has two darling little buttons in the back so that the dress can more easily be popped over a little one’s head. This pattern includes sizing from newborn to 3T.
I hope that you’ll share with us what has been inspiring you to cast on these days. We have started a new discussion on our Ravelry Group page that we’d love for you to join. Tell us what has got your creative juices flowing!
