A short, flared skirt is all you need to cheer a little girl. She goes round and round with the swirl of the skirt and you can not stop thinking how little things that cheer them up!!

“Drop a pebble in the water and it’s ripples reach out far”
Laharen is about those beautiful ripples in water which space out as they move. I took the cable pattern as the ripples in the contrast of evergreen reverse stockinette.
