View Full Version : Favorite FO for little girl

01-30-2007, 11:52 AM
My friend just adopted a little 3 yo girl from Viet Nam. I've been dying to knit something for a little girl but have mostly boys in my life. I was so excited to get to knit something pink. I used Marie Grace Smith's free pattern from Garter Belt called Tater's Cotton Cardi. Here's a photo - more on my blog www.knitsawrap.blogspot.com

This is gorgeous. I already downloaded the pattern, but how do you (K1, yo, K1) all in the same stitch? Evidently, you figured it out!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. Sometimes you just know when something comes out good and this was one of those times. So I appreciate the seal of approval. I just hope it fits!

As to the person who asked how you K1 yo K1 in the same stitch, I know this sounds a bit flip but you just do. It's hard for me to explain but once you have the yarn in your hand you'll realize that it isn't hard. It's like KFB - knit the stitch and before you take it off the needle, wrap the yarn like you would a regular YO then knit again into the stitch that is still on the left hand needle and then take it off the needle. Not sure if that makes sense but do it and I think you'll get it.

quick question, any idea if it can be made into a sweater all closed up in the front?
