Pattern Description:

Instructions for a baby's or reborn doll's rara dress set in either 4ply or DK yarn depending on size. The set comprises of a 3 layered dress, cropped waistcoat, frilled bonnet and frilly socks in a lacy pattern. When knitted this set will fit a 15-16" reborn or 2.5-4lb baby, 16-17 inch reborn or a 3-5lb premature baby,18-19 inch reborn or a 5-7lb newborn, 20-21 inch reborn or 8-10lb newborn baby, or a 22 inch reborn doll or a 0-3 month baby. You will need between 200-250g 4ply or double knitting yarn in main colour, 50g contrast colour, either 2.75mm, 3.25, 3.75mm and 4mm needles, 3 stitch holders and 5 buttons. You will also need some spare needles in the size you are working with to hold the frills on. This pattern has been designed by myself so it is in UK terminology. It does not follow the usual 'shop bought' format. There are 7 printed pages with clear and easy to follow instructions. All my patterns are tested by independent knitters before they are released, so every effort is made so that they come to you error free.

Although my patterns are strictly protected by copyright, which I ask you to respect, I am more than happy for any items made from my patterns to be sold.
