Dandelion. Hand Knit & Chochet Tunic Pattern for Kids

DandelionLogo copy
I’ve spent many summer  hours as a little girl lying on the grass watching the clouds go by. Invariably, there were dandelion flowers and late seeds,
drifting through the air, put there either by summer breezes or by blowing on them. This hand knitted tunic with crocheted ruffles captures a bit of the
feel  of that time to me… Made in limes, green and precious turquoise with bright yellow accent, this tunic is cool for any occasions and can be made in
any colors combination with other kind of flowers and 3D details. No matter what is on your schedule,  your darling Princess will sure attract attention
in this pretty, stylish, fully-detailed tunic.

    Алла! Это что-то невообразимое! Такой свежестью повеяло от этого прекрасного топика! Это именно то, чего мне не хватает уже 3-й месяц (у нас морозы за 30 стоят все это время).
    Но вот как же успеть перевязать все Ваши модели? :) Но эту буду вязать точно! Просто очаровала!
    Огромное спасибо за замечательную идею!

    OMG!! I LOVE this top!! You did a wonderful job on it Alla. It definitely gives that Summer feel that I remember as a child. I loved dandelions! Now my girls do. They love picking the flowers and blowing the seeds. :)

    The colors are gorgeous! They blend so well together and I love the wrap of ruffles! Ferry did a great job modeling it and Christie is a wonderful photographer! Those photos are CRISP! My favorite picture is the one that has Ferry with her boot up. :)

    Nice work Alla!!!

    Hello Alla,

    you doing such a great work! I love it! You are so sensitive and talented.

    I think there is a typo on this:
    Omega Perle #5 (100% cotton/ 50 g (1.75 oz)/ 278 yd):
    1-2 balls.

    I think it must be 178 yd , like you wrote above.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas.

    Alla says:

    Oh yes, it’s 178 yd. Thank you so much for letting me know, Bredja!
