Pretty as a Posy

It’s here! It’s released! I can now show you the secret project I was working on for One Planet Yarn and Fiber.

Pretty as a Posy

Lanie Rachel


This little coat dress will have your favourite little girl stylishly dressed for years to come. Knit it in the smallest size for a one-yr-old (left) and she’ll still be wearing it when she’s three (right). The full-length sleeves look great as three-quarter sleeves on an older child.

The Clarissa yarn by Lanas Puras used in this project is a 50% cotton / 50% merino yarn spun to create an artisanal thick and thin effect and hand-painted for a lovely mottled colour (I would love to see it knit up in the Sky colour, or Pomegranate or Moss!) It’s perfect for the spring,¬†cool summer evenings and the fall.

Sizes: 6-12 mo, 12-24 mo, 2T-4T
Gauge after wet blocking: 21 sts x 33 rows = 4″ (10 cm) in stocking stitch with 4 mm (US size 6) needles

Kits are available here at One Planet Yarn and Fibre.
