Pattern Description:

Great gift idea!
Knitted in the round from
the bottom up this
sleeveless baby dress has a
very cute and urban look.
Two colors are used for the
border that combines a Seed
Stitch, ruching, and a simple
two-color Fair Isle pattern
that helps the transition to
the main color of the dress.
Change in stitch pattern
together with some
decreases in the skirt part
helps to shape the
silhouette. The adornment of
the neckline repeats the
bottom border with a little
ruffle at the edge. With the
baby's comfort in mind all
yarns used for this pattern
are very soft and there are
only two carefully executed
seams at the shoulders. Your
baby will love wearing this
little dress. So, take a lot of
