Awww…thank you KHers are knitting pros so it’s great to read your comments.
Latoya is a freebie Berrocco pattern and it’s here.
Hey Mickey is from Knitty.com and it’s here.
The capelet pattern is in a thread over at Craftster.org over here.
For the capelet, yes, I used the same pattern (same number of stitches almost) but smaller needles and thinner yarn. They’re knit with size 8 circs, I just added a stitch to the back part so that the eyelets came out correctly. I also did seed stitch instead of ribbing just because I like the looks of it better. The thing is, this is the exact same size I used to make a capelet for a 6yr old and it fit her. LOL. I hope it will be big only for a little while. Good thing is that she’d get a lot of wear out of it.
I’m glad you liked the photos…the colors are very much more saturated than in real life, however. The lime green color is really more tame than the photo shows. But still very bright and fun. I was going to get a white 1/4" grograin ribbon to thread in both the skirt and capelet, but I’m thinking an off-white linen color would look nicer.
These were so fun to knit! I really love Cottonease and wish they had more colors because I would love to make a blanket with it. By the way, I used two balls for the capelet/skirt outfit and have maybe 1/3 of a ball left in lime.
