She grew - Little garter gerkin - Slight Modification



She grew, this only take a couple of evenings so I whipped up another one, this time I did 2 x the CO number of stitched added to make a cross over flaps at the front, and some buttons to secure this. I was going to add some arms and make it a jacket but I ran out of yarn…I’ll do that for next winter maybe. I find this a really enjoyable knit, no pattern needed and garter short rows just looks so neat. A wrap is needed though so it isn’t holey!.
OH YES, I also added a little short row pleat at the back, more of an experiment, I should have done it twice as a bit for a proper kick - next time.
