View Full Version : 3 FO's - My Fruit Loops

Some of you may know I am a flegling indie designer. This is my second design ever! I am really exicted about it. It was my first time venturing out designing something with more complex stitch patterns and multiple variations. I worked on it this summer, and it is availible now. I wish I could have had it out earlier!

I knit these 3 test knits, and to photograph for the pattern/pdf. I tried a few different chest widths (hard to figure out what is best on a chunky baby) and you can notice it the most on the grape one where I made it too small. I wound up choosing the width of the strawberry one which was about 2 stitches wider then the pineapple version.




More info about the pattern (if you would like to get one!):


I'm very excited and proud, I'm not working on knitting about 6 or 7 designs for a spring/summer line for 2009.

:happydance:What great designs! And the model is such a cutie-patootie!

Very, very cute tops. Babies come in all different "thicknesses" so the size you did on the grape would be just right for someone. The 'strawberry' one made me think 'watermelon', the little eyelets are shaped like watermelon seeds. :-) Nice design!
