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.

Strawberry


Pineapple


Grape


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.
