A little top

Seeing so many "pillow" dresses on Pinterest just gave me the idea of knitting a top for my little one using a very easy "slip stitch" technique for interest.

Basically I knitted a tube in the round, divided it at the armpit level (without working any decreases) and finish both front and back flaps with a 2 in ribbing. This rib is then folded over and sewn inwards to create the casing for the ribbon (I knitted the ribbon, too, but next time I'll use a real ribbon... easier and less boring!!!!! Knitting such a long strip was no fun:))))
