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!
A good friend who moved back to her home country of South Africa a couple of years ago and then had a gorgeous daughter and wanted a playsuit for her, so she asked me.
This is a great little pattern called Vinterdrakt/Winter romper by Paelas Paelas. However, it is a pretty bad translation, which someone who has not been knitting as long as I have might not be able to follow it.
And instead of using Merino wool I used DROPS Muskat, since it would be worn by my friends little girl in South Africa.
I didn’t really have a problem reading the pattern, but I knit the top a little too tight, so had to open it up again and knit it again.
My friend picked the colours, which are just so pretty together. But I don’t think I need to say anything else, but will let the following pictures do the talking…
