As a redhead, pink is like the holy grail for me. I love it. It makes my heart pitter patter. I tried to wear it a few times as a kid…any fashion is cute under 6. After that, yikes. I have some unfortunate pictures of a nine yr old me, in a pink leisure suit, with pink glasses, and a really bad hair cut. *shudders*. Thankfully I embraced my ginger status and put aside the pink. Good decision!
So now I have this smart, gorgeous, blonde little bundle of pink loving ballerina, so what else could I do but outfit her in the best pinks the yarn world has to offer!
Exhibit A. Her ballet shrug!
*squeeeee*!! I know, right!
Check out the perfection of the raglan sleeves
She loves that it shows off the bling on her bodysuit
I did a 3/4 sleeve, there is nothing a ballet teacher hates more than not being able to see the dancers lines.
I used the confection baby shrug pattern and went up a needle size to 5mm and did a few extra raglan increases. I also added a little flair by doing a *k2tog, yo* on the round before the finish ribbing. Just a little something something!
Berroco vintage in the perfect ballet pink was a no brainer choice.
Obviously it’s showing a bit of wear already, but it’s been worn with love quite a few times already. Which is so much better than a prestine project!
