Happy New Year! – Shona’s Daring Two Piece

4 Jan

Bonjour, mes amies!

Finally the last arrival is at the Hogmanay Party.

Shona, my naughtiest little girl (who rarely brushes her hair) has arrived fashionably late.


She is wearing a lovely little two piece outfit where the top comes directly from a pattern of Odile’s at Passion Poupees.


Her skirt I made myself and unusually I started it at the bottom and worked up so that I could include two rows of the scarf yarn easily. It was interesting trying to figure out the decreases for the waistband!


The yarn used for the skirt and top is Stylecraft Life 4 ply in shade 2309 (Heather) and the frill was created by the scarf yarn Papillon in shade 16 (Purple). I used a size 3.00 mm crochet hook for both.



I am very pleased with how the skirt has turned out and I made it in one go without having to stop and try again!


Shona looks ready to party with the others …


… and here they all are together at the party.


Bonsoir, à bientôt …

    What a outstanding work… I like the “scale” of the skirt. (I don’t know if it is the good word I used… Hope you will understand what I mean : ampleur in french). The color is beautiful too. Have a very nice day Elena-Jane. Bisous.
