Pink flying over the mountains

Pin It

A tiny lady in the west is soon to turn 1 year old, so a small pink and grey dress is making its way over the mountains. All ready for spring, but made in wool for still chilly spring days.

I’ve used 4mm needles, and about 1 skein of pink and 1 1/2 skein of grey in Viking Superwash.

I am so pleased with this pattern, and I think the dress is so beautiful. I have made this dress several times before. The pattern is called Littlesister’s dress, and is originally knitted on 2,5mm needles.

And big sister who turned 4 years old in January were also getting something. So this hot pink shrug are also making its way over the mountains.

The color is a vibrant hot pink, which is so dark it almost looks red in certain lights. It’s an absolutely gorgeous color, but also impossible to capture on film. It would turn out too red or too dark.

The pattern is Slipped Stitch Kiddo Cardigan, made into a shrug (made shorter). It is originally knitted on 3mm needles, but this yarn begged to be knitted on 4mm needles, so I obliged.
