Ruffle Skirt
Pattern: Made it up as I went along – sized to fit a teeny three year old
Yarn: Katia something cotton and sparkley. one ball of pink and one ball of blue (still amazed at what I got out of this yardage!)
Needles: Inox 3mm (I think)
Started: mid-July, I think
Finished: Sept 12, 2007

She loves it. I used a folded down hem, and put a little elastic in the waistband so that it wouldn’t slide down. I’m hoping that I’m going to be able to pull that elastic out as she gets a bit bigger, and put a bigger loop of elastic in. When I measured the skirt flat, with no elastic, the waist measured 21″, the elastic loop is 19″ and her waist is currently 18″. So it’s cinched just a bit. It fits great now!

Maybe a sweater next.
