Ainsworth & Prin Sparrow with Liberty print skirt
The simplest of our dresses to make Sparrow has a nautical feel. Easy to knit in graduated moss and stocking stitch stripes with moss stitch edgings. The front divides with each side being knit separately, stitches are then picked up for the front bib which has yarn over buttonholes. Front and back are knit flat and then joined at the shoulders, and stitches picked up for the moss stitch neck band.
A simple gathered skirt of finely woven Liberty Tana Lawn is sewn to the bodice.
Skills required: casting on, casting off, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, picking up stitches and yarn overs. The skirt is machine sewn on.
The kit includes the pattern, Pima cotton, fabric, co-ordinating buttons and sewing thread. Needles not included.
Machine washable on a delicate cycle at 30 degrees.
