Summer for the wee tots

With warmer air, blooming flowers, and those Spring showers, I know that Summer is just around the corner. If you are anything like me, you might want to get a move on knitting those warm summer items for the kiddos!

I have two patterns in my design portfolio that you might enjoy ...

In fact, I am offering up this little number for half price! From now until May 4th, use coupon code SUMMERTOT for 50% off! That's only two weeks! Share this code to your heart's content, but only one use per customer. :) 

This sweet little tank was designed with my charming daughters in mind, two happy sisters who love playing together in the bright sun of summer. “Sorelle Felici” is pronounced ‘sor-rehl-lay fell-ee-chee,’ which is Italian for… you guessed it, Happy Sisters.

The tank skirt is worked in the round and then divided to work the front and back in rows. To be able to knit this top, you should be able to knit, purl, follow simultaneous shaping instructions, decrease, measure armhole depth, seam shoulders together, and know (or be able to learn) Twist 2 Front (a cable stitch).

I love this little top and it is a piece inside the FABULOUS book More Knitting in the Sun: 32 Patterns to Knit for Kids. In addition to my design, you will find ALL SORTS of cute knits for your kidlets this summer. The book is available on Amazon, as well as many local yarn stores, so be sure to grab a copy.

Adorned with ruffles and a bit of lace, this quick knit makes a sweet top for your charming tot, and big girls will love it, too! The supersoft yarn and easy-to-wear silhouette will make it a favorite any day of the year.
