Debbie Bliss Sailor Collar Cardigan and Shorts PDF - Debbie Bliss Magazine #8

$5.00 Each

Mini sailor suits were all the rage for Victorian boys - everyone from the Queen on down loved to deck their wee ones out in the Royal Navy uniform. This easy stockinette-stitch version from Debbie Bliss in Eco Baby organic cotton, recaptures this whimsy in a striped cardigan with sailor collar, set-in sleeves and garter-stitch button band and edgings.The roomy shorts slip on and off easily for quick changes. Baby looks très jolie in this version of the traditional French sailor’s beret, which is recognizable by its distinctive red pompom. The hat is fashioned flat in garter stitch and seamed, making it a great item for new knitters to tackle. The yarn is Eco Baby, a Fair Trade 100% organic cotton made without harsh chemical dyes.
