I design knit-wear for kids. I love Crème Brulée, Sci-Fi, 70 degree weather and reading a good book in bed. This website chronicals my adventures in knitwear design and my book 'Just Like Me Knits'.

Bitty Bolero

By Brandy Fortune

Bitty BoleroPerfect for a day picking flowers in a field, or playing in the leaves, this sweet little bolero will keep the child in your life warm and snug. Top-down construction means no bulky sleeve seems for quick knitting, minimal finishing and a comfortable fit. Extra long ribbed cufs, and a shawled collar keep your bitty one cozy, while adding a bit of modern style to a classic silhouette.
