Pirate Knitted Crossover
May 25th, 2016
A few weeks ago we went to pirate day, we had lots of fun doing pirate things and doing treasure hunts, but it was cold, very cold, I wore a lovely shawl I knitted and some arm warmers, unfortunately none of us thought to take a photo of me!
We did however get to take a photo of my son wearing his knitted crossover!
I knitted one of these for the film “tell them of us” a WW1 film and we love them, I did a blog post about how they are good items to ‘grow into’
This is a really easy knit, all in garter stitch making it a great pattern for beginners.
What I hadn’t realised is how well this looks when it is part of a pirate costume!
It does fit down snuggly over his arms covering his shoulders but Pretzel boy had been flinging his arms around so it bunched up, he was happy with it that way though
Going back to last summer my little faery borrowed this when we were at the new forest faery festival, she was 4 and it fitted her really well, she chose to wear is a little differnly and this is another great way to wear it!
as you can imagine it was hard to get a picture as she was on the go!
I will be making her her own one of these, I have bought some lovely Rowan wool for it, but finding the time is a whole other thing!
