“Lily” is the latest completed addition to the Ribbon and Lace Collection.  This little set is just so pretty and fresh.  Lily is my friend Nicolas’ first granddaughter and brought so much joy to their family. 

This is a very simple knit for people new to using knit in lace. I used the lace with broderie anglaise attached and added ribbon and flowers. Personally I think this is suitable for a beginner as the stitch is straight forward knit and purl and it is the lace that really brings it to life.  Pictures do not do this design justice and you can really make it your own with whatever embellishments you add.

Size Guide:  The pattern for dress with matching shoes.

Wool & yarn recommendation…

I often get asked which wool I use and who my yarn supplier is!  For this knit I have used Stylecraft Special DK which I selected for its softness, it is very gentle on a baby’s skin.  There are over 88 different shades available through LoveCrafts, who are my preferred yarn and wool supplier.  (Spend over £25 to get free P&P and sign up their newsletter for 15% off your first order!)… I would also recommend Paintbox DK for this pattern.
