Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Knitbot Kids Week: Day 2

Today's NEW web exclusive pattern: Sweet Pleat!

This swingy top for little girls takes full advantage of the drape and simplicity that Quince & Co. Kestrel has to offer.  All edges are raw, meaning that no edge finishing is necessary -- you can steam iron this knitted fabric nice and flat.  The pattern includes the option to finish the collar and armhole edges if you like an extra neat finish.  And if you'd like to substitute wool, go right ahead!  Just add an inch or two of garter stitch to the hem.

A tutorial video is coming later this week on creating the s- and z-pleats!
