FO: Gorgeous Girl in a Winter Romper

A friend from my previous work life saw me post about another winter romper here, asked me to make one for her gorgeous little girl.

I used the lovely Vinterdrakt pattern from the Paelas ladies. It’s a great pattern, but it’s got a few mistakes throughout, which I had spotted the first time I used the pattern and had corrected in my version. I keep thinking I should let them know so they can correct it for others that buy the pattern.

I used DROPS Muskat for the romper as I had done for the previous one I had knitted.

I love the colour my friend picked, it’s such a wonderful purple and the pictures don’t really do it justice.

The waffle stitches at the top works really well, especially after I learnt from the last time knitting this that I needed to keep them very loose.

And the added i-cord in the pink gives it that extra pop of colour, which looks great!

My friend sent me these gorgeous pictures of her little girl wearing them and I am so pleased with how it fits her and she just looks adorable!
