Frilled with that


My girls complain that it is very difficult to buy good knits for little ones. I complain that it is very difficult to find good patterns to knit for little ones. So when I put this pink and white jumper together for Little A without following a pattern, I felt pretty pleased with myself.



It is the first time I have attempted to knit something without religiously following a pattern and while I can't say it has given me great confidence to create more originals, I certainly feel released from the tyranny of slavishly following patterns.



Who knows where this might lead.

Just found your blog and while I have been admiring your quilting, I really love this project. I was going to ask about the pattern, till I got to the end of the post :-) Is it made with cotton?
