Here are three of Rebecca's designs. She really does come up with cute toddler designs.
The purple coat has a tricky loopy stitch: not that it's so hard but it really slows you down. The stitch is dense and should really keep a kid warm.
The vest is just so festive you smile when you look at it. We kind of thought a hat would make a spiffy ensemble. (if there's enough yarn left over). Then there's the scarf. It makes me giggle. Must be that fur. I know the scarf is destined for donation.
Both of these items are made in that diagonal stitch. Shelli is off to a good start on her diagonal afghan and now Chris thinks she might be interested in trying this stitch. Whatever is it's allure?
