“One Size Fits All”
August 19th, 2014
The Knitted crossover I posted yesterday really is “One Size Fits All”
On an adult it feels more like an extra warm Knitted shawl it keeps you much warmer than a shawl and is snug,almost like a shawl being warped around you but you don’t have to pit it, or worry about it falling off!
On a child it is more like a jumper, that feeling every mother wants to give to a child when they are cold, just wrap them up all snug and warm in a blanket, this gives that sort of comforting and loving feel!
What I like about this garment is that it is so comfortable to wear and it does not restrict movement at all. You can wear this doing almost anything, often shawls can slip or restrict how you move but this is great!
Great for busy mums, or people who move about a lot, in my minds eye I can see a farm girl milking a cow or going about farm work in this!
I really do love it and I look forward to making more of them for people of all ages!
This is on an adult
This is the crossover/ shawl on an 8year old, as you can see it fits nicely and he can move his arms about fine, and on a child the back really is more shawl like, similar to the triangular shawls (he didn’t seem to mind the edging but said on his he doesn’t want edging…seems I am making him one!)
And finally how lovely it looks on a 3 year old, I think this looks really nice, like a really snug jumper, I can see a mother in the early 1900’s, walking along with a cold child in the wind,taking her knitted crossover off and warping her child in it so they stay warm.
She could really move about in it too!
I was a little worried that it would restrict arms but it is fine
And it looks lovely from the back too
I love this because of so many reasons, but one that sticks in my mind is that I can make it for children as well as adults and for children it will last them their whole life! a lovely item that will stay with them as they grow!
I will be sad to send this off for filming, but then I have said that about every item!
