I have been crafting since I was a little girl, partly because I don't like to just sit still and do nothing! I love the feeling of finishing a project, and I love the reaction when I give a special handmade gift to one of my children or a friend. There is something very special about making something that no one else has.
If you have tried out any of my patterns, the first thing you probably noticed is that they are EASY! Why? While I love a good challenge as much as the next girl, I also like to knit and crochet to unwind after a long stressful day at the office. I often (always) work on my projects while watching TV or a movie or while spending time with my three children who like to talk... sometimes at a very fast pace and all at once. :) An easy pattern is a requirement for me. I hate frogging or as I call it un-knitting. I've made it a bit of a mission to create patterns that look difficult and impressive but actually aren't. I really hope that you enjoy making them as much as I did.
I made this as a shower gift for a co-worker and I was surprised by how quickly and easily it worked up. I can make one dress and one accessory (hat or headband) in an evening. It is wonderful when you need a last minute gift that is special.
The construction is very simple and straightforward, but the detailing is impressive. This is truly a dress that will become an heirloom for the special little one that receives it.
The pattern will make a size 6-12 months, but can easily be adjusted by starting with a larger or smaller number of stitches. Please feel free to reach out to me if you need help adjusting the stitch count for a different size.
4 inches by 4 inches = 12 SC stitches and 15 rows
