This one has been a long time coming.......I started knitting this little tank in July of last year, had issues with the multi-stranded colour work and then kept using the wrong size of needles to make the arm bands....but all in all, it was a fun knit and I think the outcome isn't too bad - even if the Russian Doll is a little squiffy!!
Pattern: Dolly Mixtures from Ravelry. Size 2. 4 ply yarn - Dale of Norway, Baby Ull.
The back is lots of stripes which was fun to knit but sewing in the ends was a little mind-numbing.
The rib was fun to knit - it is called mistake rib. Knit 2, purl 2 in the first row then in the second row Knit 1, *Purl 2, Knit 2, repeating from * to the last 3 stitches when you knit 2, purl 1. It makes for an interesting, twisted looking rib.
Of course having taken so long to knit the tank it doesn't fit it's intended recipient any more so I'll have to wait for the next little girl to grow into it.
