Color Me Pretty’ top is my second design in the series of fun Fair Isle garments that I have been lately making for Maya.

The top is worked entirely in the round from top down and has an A-line shape; the lower section features a colorwork design. Since children significantly vary in height, the top’s length is easily customizable.

24m-3T: 22”/56 cm
4-5T: 23.5”/60 cm

8: 26”/ 66 cm
