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.

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

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!

Well! I have upped your sales today hun . I have bought it today and it is a project that i will make soon.
I paid and downloaded straight away and it also saved itself to my ravelry Library.
