Blacker Swan Girl’s Smocked Tunic and Leggings free knitting pattern.
Level of difficulty: easy – requires smocking but otherwise only stocking stitch and picot edge hems
This adorable ensemble of tunic or dress and leggings, designed in 4-ply Blacker Swan yarn by Tina Barrett, will make
all little girls twice as lovely. The tunic is made for children from 0-6 months up to 7-8 years old because we love it
so much it’s a shame to leave it just for babies. The leggings are sized only up to 2 years. With a little adapting, you
may wish to lengthen the leggings and leave off the picot edges at the hems, to have extra warm and stylish leggings
for older girls. See also last page for a dungaree option. The sleeves can also be lengthened and simplified if
desired. In addition, there is always the option of adding a contrast colour for the smocking and edges and/or some
embroidered flowers scattered along the hem of the tunic.
