PATTERN DETAILS
Tutti Frutti is a modern take on a classic pinafore, and my nod to the practical garment that’s been in fashion for decades! Use a high-contrast color combo for a statement piece, or go low-contrast for a more subtle look.

Tutti Frutti has a form-skimming silhouette, but if you want a top that’s a bit more snug you can easily size down. With a tie waist and crisscross straps, Tutti Frutti works wonderfully over your favorite dress, chambray, or t-shirt!

This is a great pattern for you if:

  • You like practical but pretty garments.
  • You want to knit a garment, but still need the satisfaction of a quick knit.
  • You want to learn intarsia.
  • You love a vintage, preppy look.

CONSTRUCTION
Tutti Frutti is knit flat in one piece from the bottom-up using intarsia for the contrasting border, and includes princess darts to ensure a perfect fit.

TECHNIQUES
2x1 rib, intarsia, simple increases and decreases, picking up stitches, seaming/grafting, and applying trim.

Video tutorials are included for advanced techniques and transitions.
