Back again with another pattern for you all, but this one is FREEEEEEE.. Yay! Petite Panache went up for free download today at Jimmy Beans Wool.
Earlier in the summer I had entered a deisng contest being held by Jimmy Beans Wool to design a pattern specifically for their beautiful amazing buttery soft and lustrous Misti Alpaca. Well I won the chance to design Petite Panache for their website and work with a lovely yarn too!
Petite Panache is a charming jacket worked in chunky weight with areas of texture to emphasize the short color changes in this beautiful hand-dyed yarn. This little gem has an extra large offset collar, and a flared waist for some pint-sized panache. The main body of the jacket is worked in stockinette with seed stitch cuffs, collar and pleats for touches of textures to subtly change the look of the yarn without a busy stitch pattern to compete with the gorgeous colors. Finished off with oversized buttons this is sure to keep your little one cozy and stylish!
