The Little Pixie Tee is the companion, children’s version, of the Pixie Dust Tee; a wonderfully versatile top that can be paired with jeans, shorts or skirts for different looks for all seasons. The diamondback provides a gorgeous design that’s lacy giving you a garment that’s airy and comfortable. Its ribbed sleeves and hem hugs your arms and torso comfortably. The little girl in your life will get great use from this versatile design. An adult version of this tee is also available on Ravelry. Use promo code ‘formommy’ to get 25% off.

Please note: Gauge is extremely important with any fitted garment, but especially with the row height of this particular stitch. I use fairly light tension when I crochet, you may need to go up a hook size or adjust your stitching so that your row height matches mine. Because of the unique nature of this stitch you may need to pay particular attention to how tightly you are crocheting, be sure not to make the first part of the stitch too tight. See notes for more.

STITCH GUIDE
ch(s) - chain(s), sc - single crochet, st(s) - stitch(es), sl st - slip stitch, RS - right side,

SPECIAL STITCHES

Herringbone HDC (referred to as herringbone in pattern)
YO, insert hook in st, YO and draw through the st and the first loop on the hook (two loops remain on hook), YO and draw through two remaining loops on hook. Be sure not to pull the first part of the stitch too tightly.

Herringbone two together
YO, insert hook in first st, YO and draw through the st and the first loop on the hook (two loops remain on hook) insert hook in next st, yarn over and draw through the st and the first st on the hook (two loops remain on hook), YO and draw through remaining two loops on hook.

NOTES
• Top is constructed bottom up in two panels, shoulders are seamed and sleeves are added before side seaming
• Ch 2 (and ch 1) are not considered the first stitch, the first herringbone (or sc) will be placed in the same st as the Ch 2 (or ch 1)
• Sides are marked as would be worn
• Be sure to check gauge. The pattern includes measurements required where necessary and the schematic shows the measurements of the finished garment. Be sure your dimensions match.
