Polka Dot Spots

Polka Dot Spots

7.00

This mama is crazy about polka dots because there is something innately happy about them. My boys also absolutely love it when I wear something they consider interesting. Thus, funky colorful hats for them, and neutrals in a basic infinity cowl for me. Colorwork is stranded, hats are worked bottom-up and the cowl is worked sideways in the round and grafted for a seamless finish. Top dog Jesse is wearing Size Child, Charlie (age 3) is wearing Toddler and baby Oliver is wearing Size 3 months. Oliver is also wearing his Sugar Bear Cardigan (pattern sold separately). Designs originally featured in Petite Purls magazine.
