After the resounding success of Coastal Knits, the beautiful collaboration between Hannah + Alana, being mother's themselves, the only logical next step was to take four of the patterns from the book and create a mini collection just for kids. Over the last two weeks, they released Coastal Kids, a collection of individual .pdfs of the Little Oak, Wee Wildflower, Tiny Rocky Coast + Mini Water's Edge. The tow patterns by Hannah, Tiny Rocky Coast + Mini Water's Edge feature the Fibre Company yarns!
Like the original, the cardigan is knit from the top down at a slightly looser gauge than recommended on the label, features a beautiful six stitch cable, deep ribbing, wide collar and optional tie closure. Kate has already started a wee version for baby Charlie in guava, and has been knitting it all weekend at every opportunity - that is, every opportunity having a 10 week old allows her!
