Knits for Little Scamps is created in collaboration with my kids. They have been both creative patterns and huge sources of inspiration.

My daughter Nova has asked me repeatedly to knit her something in “the sunset yarn”, as she calls the Zauberball yarn the first time she saw it. She’s completely in love with the colors.

Since the yarn is a bit tricky to work with as it tilts a bit, I chose to knit a skirt. Nova loves skirts and dresses. I love knitting seamlessly and in the round, so it is a perfect match.

Personally I prefer the striped version, but I love stripes so that’s not very surprising.
