Libelle

Andrea Sanchez

Every now and a pattern comes along that makes me wish for a daughter. Libelle by Julia Barrowcliffe is that pattern from our Spring Collection. Why? Uh, because just look at it! 

This pattern is a mixture of amazingly sweet and down-to-earth at the same time. The colorwork dragonflies (I KNOW!) are the sweet, and the lovely neutral shades of Zealana's Kiwi Fingering are the down-to-earth. So precious!

Have you tried knitting wit Zealana yarns yet? Kiwi is a wonderful blend of 40% New Zealand Merino, 30% organic cotton, and 30% brushtail possum. This yarn is surprisingly soft but still has the light and sturdy feeling of cotton. 

The chart for this pattern, while large, is not too complex (honest!). I also love that Julia included instructions for non-puffed sleeves in case you can't handle that much cuteness in one garment. Our little model, Ruby, wore this very well over her polka dot chambray dress. 

Since the collection launched last week I've been brainstorming which colors to use for my own Libelle. While D or N won't sport this blouse, I do have a 3 year old niece who could use some hand knits in her life.

I know someone out there will be knitting this! How can you now? Please share it on Instagram using #knittinlittle and link it up on Ravelry

Grove Pullover

Andrea Sanchez

I am very excited to have Kate Oates contribute a design to our Fall Collection. I love that her garments for kids are casual, have grown-up charm, and are oh, so wearable. Grove Pullover is no exception to this. 

Grove Pullover is a bottom up raglan pullover (one of my favorite ways to knit sweaters!) that features a zippered placket, high collar, and leather elbow and shoulder patches! Not to mention the moss stitch that gives this simple shape so much texture and interest. 

Please do not be intimidated by the finishing in this pattern! Kate is a master of thorough explanations, and even provides a link in the pattern to tutorials on her site which include a template for the elbow patches. 

This sweater was knit in Dream in Color Classy. Classy is one of those hardwearing yarns, perfect for children's knits. It is dyed in a wide array of beautiful and vibrant colors. Even better, it comes in large 250 yard skeins so you will get a lot of mileage out of that yarn. 

Grove Pullover makes me picture little boys running out in apple orchards or playing in the leaves. It is the perfect fall pullover for your little, and with 6 sizes to choose from you can knit one for the next few years too!
