Timeless Knits for Kids - Chris de Longpre'

Written by Chris de Longpre' - Knitting at Knoon


Rib Tickler
Knit in Greenland (100% Merino Superwash Wool - 137 yds/100 g) - shown in color 3500 - 2-4 balls

Sizes - 4-14 (23-32")

This charming vest gets its tickle from lace ribbing extending from the top of the ribcage to the hem.  This version is a go-with-anything color, but made in a favorite color, will tickle any girl's fancy.
Cotton Candy

Knit in 220 Superwash (100% Superwash wool - 220 yds./100 g) - shown in color 894 - 3-6 balls

Sizes - 4-14 (29-38 1/2")

A truly girly-pullover will be loved by any girly-girl.  The all-over lace pattern is surprisingly easy to knit.  It might look dainty, but modified drop shoulders and plenty of ease will keep her from sitting on the sidelines.  Even the girly-est of girls has to keep up with her older brother!

Head of the Class

Knit in 220 Superwash - shown in color 1922 - 3-6 balls

Available in sizes - 4-14

When Chris was in grade school, all the girls in her family had school cardigans that would go to school on Mondays and return home to be laundered on Fridays.  This is her version of a school cardigan to make in any color with fitted sleeves and a dainty "string of pearls" edging.
