Chris de Longpre

for Knitting at KNoon   2005

Italian Ice (ages 3 - 10)

"Grape, lime, and pineapple on raspberry-- mmmmm!" says de Longpre. "An easy-fitting A-line tunic with simple bands of I-cord adornment. Raglan sleeves with a jewel neck. What fun!" There are several genius qualities to this design. First, it goes with anything kids wear, and always will; no trendiness here. Second, you work it in the round to the armholes, then split for front and back; sleeves are knit flat separately-- lots of variety for the knitter. Third, the attached I-cord is a simple and beautiful embellishment after the body of the work is done; easy and enjoyable (and uses up oddments if you have them-- who doesn't?). Fourth, a matching doll sweater can be found here.
