Blueberry Romper - English
Blueberry Romper is worked from the bottom up, both flat and in the round with 1 strand of either Merino, Cotton Merino or Pure Silk.
You start working the two crotch pieces back and forth, before work is joined on one needle and continued in the round up to the underarms. Here, work is divided into front and back, and each piece is shaped and finished separately back and forth. Stitches are picked up for the edges around the neck, arm and leg openings and finished in garter stitch.
The Blueberry stitch pattern is charted only.
