Knitting Pattern: Dancer Nine Years

Knitting Pattern: Dancer Nine Years


This is a original version of the Dancer sweater, named after its recipient, our cousin Saskia. At this age she loved dance but she has since gone on to express herself beautifully with abstract paintings in various media.

Of course the main colors are periwinkle and white! Three dancers are surrounded by swirls. The sleeves have swirls and crosses. The wrists and hem have a dancers pattern, with various girls in different colored dresses against a land and sky background. The neck, wrists, and hem have picot trim in alternating stripes of dark blue and variegated blue. There is a small placket at the neck with two pewter clasps.

Pattern has written directions and full color charts to enlarge. The pattern assumes a good knowledge of knitting, or at least an adventurous spirit and a knitting guidelines book.
Have fun!
