The LOLITA sweater is a journey of discovery and learning. We are taking fingering weight yarns to a new drape and fabric that will utilize the yarn to its optimum efficiency and wearability. We will enrich your knitting skills in myriad ways and place the bets on a winning pattern that kids will love to wear! Enjoy the journey!

This pattern is a template. Never lose sight that this is your opportunity to build a garment that will be loved! The LOLITA sweaters shown give you an idea of the versatility of the pattern, be there stripes or color blocks or the beauty of a hand-painted multi-color.

As we like to say … the only successful project is a completed project that you are happy with.

I am thankful to the fabulous purveyors of beautiful yarns, especially Cephalopod Yarns, Purlsoho and The Verdant Gryphon. More samples are already in the works and one of Miss Babs fingering weights will soon be featured as well. A huge thank you goes out to Mindy Kirschner, one of my intrepid students who bugged me enough to get this done. Huge thanks to all the others who listened to my joys and struggles over the yarns and colors and finished pieces. And of course thank you to Kate, Kieran, Callahan and Julia who so willingly modeled the samples! I love you all! Kisses on the nose!
