Priscilla Rabbit; Sister of Peter Inspired by one of my favorite authors of children’s books,  Beatrix Potter, I thought~  what if Peter rabbit had a twin sister? Thinking about the little baby poncho and pants I was about to knit  & about what I wanted to embroider on the poncho’s pocket, resulted in the creation of Priscilla, Peter’s twin sister!

I have hand-knit the pants from a very soft yarn, aptly named, “Simply Soft”. This is a 100% acrylic yarn that is both machine washable and dribble~  a very good feature to have for children’s clothing. The pants are a beautifully soft shade of light blue,  seeming almost a silvery-blue. I’ve hand embroidered a mini bower of flowers in 2 tones of pink at the bottom front of the right leg,  to co-ordinate with the flowers that I hand-embroidered on the pocket of the poncho.

The fluffy-soft, white hooded poncho is knit from a warm, bulky-wt. yarn that is also 100% acrylic & machine washable & dribble. The poncho has a nice roomy fit and will be nice & warm worn over a t-shirt, sweater or bodysuit (onesie.)  Painstakingly, over the course of three days,  I  hand-embroidered the pocket on the front of the poncho.  As with all of my embroidery, this was done free-hand, composed as I stitched, without the use of patterns or iron-on transfers. And so, Priscilla was created.  I think Peter would have liked her and I think this is an outfit that any little girl would love to wear! This is an heirloom-quality outfit that hopefully can be enjoyed by many generations.

*The pants measure approx. 17″ from the bottom of the cuff to the top of the front of the waistband. The waist is threaded with a handknit cord, making it adjustable simply by tightening or loosening the tie.

**The hooded knit poncho is approx.12 1/2″ from the shoulder to the lower edge. The sides may be worn open or tied with two hand crocheted ties as shown in the photos,  (The ties are easily removed if you prefer  the sides open. They can be carefully slipped through the open spaces in the knitting.)

***Washing Instructions: Machine wash, warm water, gentle cycle/ Machine dry; low heat, delicate cycle. No iron – May also be handwashed & laid out to air dry.  I recommend washing in a lingerie bag to help protect the embroidery from catching on something in the wash.
