Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
My sweet fairy is coming along. I have stitched up the adorable tulip skirt in the Wildberries colorway of Fine. This shade of purple is perhaps my favorite purple ever. I am usually not much of a purple person but this one really gets me. The skirt starts out on the smaller size dpns and then moves onto the larger size. For me that is US size 2 for the larger needles.
You do a rapid increase to give the flower shaped skirt a ruffled look. Then three little points are created along the bottom. There are a few ends to weave in but this only takes a quick minute. I promise.
I love how the fairy patiently sits and awaits her new skirt.
Last, I used a whipstitch with a yarn needle to attach the skirt to the purl round on the fairy’s body. I stitched it so you could see the Cricket green running along the waistband. I like this look because it is a little decorative and looks almost like a tiny belt detail.
She’s looking good in the neighborhood!
I’ve heard from lots of fairy knitters. Thank you for joining in. If you’ve already finished a fairy awhile ago please feel free to share those, too. All fairies are welcome. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with. Now I am onto her wings and hat…
