Instructional Video link for the baltic trim (You Tube)
This dress is by far my favorite design! The dress or tunic top begins at the center with the baltic trim. Nothing difficult - just knitting and purling while alternating yarn colors (You Tube video link included with pattern). From there, you simply knit down the skirt to the desired length. Work an easy ruffle and bind off. Stitches are then picked up from the other side of the baltic trim (easy to see and pick up due to the 2 colors being worked) and then it's knit up to the top ending with a 3-needle bind off.

I am a knitting instructor, published designer and mother of 2 teenage girls.
I am obsessed with knitting, love vegetable gardening and cooking.
My designs can be seen in over a dozen books and magazines as well as my "How To" knitting articles.
My latest endeavor is taping some "How To" knitting DVD's. So new that they are still in the editing stages.
