Primrose - The Little Sister Pattern To Katniss.
Pretty. Feminine. Delicate.

Primrose is a stylishly simple and seamless pattern, featuring sweet lace panels in the raglans, waist and hem.

Great for layering with leggings or jeans in winter as a tunic, or knit in cotton for a pretty summer dress.

Primrose is written in 11 sizes (NB - 10 years) and looks just as gorgeous on older children as it does on babies. It comes with three easy to follow options within the pattern for the empire waist band - lace, lace eyelet (looks lovely with a ribbon threaded through) and a no lace option.

Designed to be knitted with a solid or semi solid yarn colour and all sizes use 3 feature buttons. Knitted top down and all in one piece.

It can be knitted with either 8 ply/DK or 10 ply/worsted, however the fabric of the finished garment depends upon the yarn you choose.

Sister pattern to Katniss, which is available as an individual pattern or can be bought with Primrose in The Everdeens e-book

  • 8ply/DK will result in a looser fabric with nice drape
  • 10ply/worsted weight will result in a tunic with a slightly more dense fabric.
  • If wishing to knit this in cotton, a 10ply cotton is recommended
