Pattern Description:

This fun, fanciful, Faerie Frock will bring out the whimsy in you! It features vertical stripes of knit panels in the skirt, which are connected as they are made, thus there is no need to have multiple balls of yarn all being used at the same time. The frock can be made with or without a hood and there are many variations on the skirt, hood, and sleeves. Several line drawings are included so you can plan out your colors. As for the number of colors needed, you can do what makes you happy; use a different color for every part, or use just two or three colors for the panels or even stash~bust and wing it! The whole point of this pattern is to have fun and to bring some joy to the one who gets to wear it.

There are several videos linked to help with various parts of the pattern. There are also many full color photos to show the various options within the pattern.
