Recently when my brother and his wife were over with their daughter Eliana who was approaching the age of 2, she made a beeline to our bookshelf containing ~200 or so books to pull out one titled ‘The Art Of Seduction.’

“What?! Why that one??” I asked my sister-in-law while falling over cracking up.

“Eliana loves orange,” she replied laughing, noting the mostly bright orange color of the spine.

For Eliana’s 2nd birthday I designed and made this skirt for her, a simple top-down lace knit in the round with two yarns held together at all times for a gorgeous marled effect. It is easily adjustable to all smaller and larger sizes (adult even!) by simply decreasing or increasing the number of pattern repeats around.

This pattern design in US knit terms may not be distributed or sold as your own, but feel free to sell a finished item made from this pattern.

This is a unique idea, so I wanted to give it a try. It's a great pattern and the liner I crocheted turned out to be softer than I expected, but it was just too thick to be comfortable for me. If you try out this pattern, I recommend using a soft, but very thin yarn. Quality pattern, though.

Super excited to try this pattern. Will be awhile before I'm ready to make it for my husband blanket, though. When I contacted the seller, she was extremely knowledgeable and more than helpful! This will be my first chart pattern so I was nervous to buy but she ended all of my anxiety and I feel comfortable that if I have any issues that Stace will be able to go and beyond when answering. Couldn't be happier. Thanks so much

Super easy to follow and super easy to make. The only downside is that the ears were a bit small. probably an easy fix if I tweak the pattern a bit but I'm still a new crocheter. Would absolutely buy from the seller again.
