Bitty Vera

What is Vera? Well Vera is a colorway I've always liked from Lorna's Laces yarns. See the yummy chocolate, creamy beige, and bright raspberry....making myself hungry now ;)

Toooooooo cute or what! I hope to see a modeled shot one day!

Bitty Bump by Gina Bomono
Lorna's Laces Shepard Worsted, "Vera" Colorway
US 11 & 15 dpn/circs
Used approx. 180 yds, approx. 45 yds leftover

Mods: well, not sure if you call it one, but I doubled worsted yarn for the bulky weight. I wanted superwash and the only bulky that fit the bill wasn't so voila, double the worsted and there ya go!

I also picked up 8 stitches in the underarm area to ensure no holes. I slipped the first stitch at the beginning of each row (well I did forget a few times ;)

A cute, easy knit. I love it with the ribbon, but heck you could add a button too. No buttonhole needed either.

I think the patterns from the designer are really cute, sorta like wee grown up wear. I also think they will be perfect for handspun yarns too!

What a cute little top! And with only 180 yards, I bet you finished it in record time. I'm off to check out the designer's stuff!

Very cute! Love Vera! I've had many different weights of Vera LL in my stash at varying times.

Very cute. I love that it's not traditional baby pastel!

I had a yarn like that one time. The name was Chocolate Covered Cherries.

Congrats on the beautiful finish!
