Now, three Elise knitting patterns are all live. They are fun knitting projects to work with not only for Easter, but also stunning Halloween costume for all ages, from infant to adult.

I design this vest for my girl for Easter egg hunt. It’s still cold now in Michigan. So I have to knit her a 3/4 size so that she could wear this vest over her coat.
