Handspun Pinafore

This pattern is designed to maximize the yardage and accentuate the beauty of handspun or otherwise extraordinary yarns.  With its sleeveless yoke and a-line body, it makes the most of a small amount of yarn.  Undulating waves and graduating garter ridges highlight the unique textures and long color transitions in handspun and artisan dyed yarns.  Instructions are given for 5 sizes from ages 1-12 and include options for contrasting yoke and hem, 2  yoke styles, and 3 closure styles (button loop tutorial provided).  This pattern is easily worked by an advances beginner and is a simple first lace project.
