First up was this crocheted pettiskirt. How adorable is this?!? It is primarily for use as a photo prop, but Meg and I thought she might be able to wear it over leggings in the cold air of the Midwest winter as sort of a blanket.
Pattern: Pettiskirt by OhSoCuteDesigns
Yarn: 1 skein each of pink, light purple, dark purple of Plymouth Merino Worsted
Mods: I did not do the full top edging on the skirt--I only did one round of SC in darkest purple.
I played with the color arrangement until I was happy with it. I ended up layering from lightest to darkest. I also really like that you can sort of arrange the ruffles to get as much or as little of the pink and light purple as you want. The waist is a rib with a tie, so it is made to fit newborn to 1 year. Megan was initially planning this for Ella's 1 year pictures, so we will see.
The designer does, graciously, grant rights to other knitters to make and sell these, so if you would like to order a pettiskirt, let me know. We can customize the colors. So CUTE!
