Introducing Pretty as a Posy......and more!

We are excited to announce the release of our newest pattern, Pretty As a Posy designed by the talented Holli Yeoh of Bee's Knees Knits exclusively for our very own Lanas Puras Clarissa. Pretty As a Posy is an adorable coat dress for toddler girls, perfect over leggings or jeans. The coat dress was designed to be an easy knit requiring minimal shaping. The ribbing pulls in the bodice to create the effect of a semi-shaped armhole. The dress is shown in Lanas Puras Clarissa, a 50% cotton, 50% merino cotton comfort yarn which is a perfect year round weight for those who prefer a more breathable fabric. The coat dress is an advanced beginner pattern and is designed in 3 sizes ranging from 6 months to 4 years. It is a truly sweet heirloom quality knit piece, sure to be a hit on your little one or when given as a special gift!

Pretty As a Posy is available as a single leaf download pattern or as part of a complete knit kit which includes both the pattern download and Lanas Puras Clarissa in the Petal colorway as shown in the pattern photos. Knit this sweater dress for your favourite one-year-old and she’ll still be wearing it when she’s three. It will have stylish three-quarter length sleeves and a shorter skirt – but it still looks great!
