For Thanksgiving, I made both of my sister's aprons from this pattern. The apron takes about four hours to make from start to finish, very easy but of course I am not the best seamstress in the world.
Added to the apron, I sent a knitted dishrag.
Very easy to make: I use size 8 needles with one ball of cotton yarn.
Cast on three stitches. The the following pattern: knit one, add one,
knit one to the end - until you have 44 stitches, then decrease as follows:
knit one, decrease one, knit to the end until three stitches left and bind off
I love the add of purple color for the pocket.
Finally, I made the most delicious Cranberry Bread from this site: http://shutterbean.com
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
