I finished a wee teeny tiny test knit for tiKKi called “Little Butterflies”.
This pattern is in testing at the moment and is due for release in Mid-April. In true tiKKi style it is a beautiful pattern and is a joy to knit. It is knit in one piece from the top down, it is constructed well and the size is adaptable to add extra length if and when needed. I knit mine exactly to the pattern, and knitted the subbed version (there is a table to change the yarn from DK) in NB size for our baby due in June.
I used some gorgeous Clekheaton Cocoon (70% Merino, 30% Nylon) in white which I have had in stash since 2008.
Yesterday I tried it on my friends wee 10 week old boy. He was a real trooper though was a bit tired when I took the photos. It is a great fit around chest and arms and the length is fab. Next time I will do this pattern I want to do the 8ply version with longer sleeves.
