Pattern Description:

Lena loves to go to Yappy Hour at our nearby Ritz Carlton and when a Howl-o-ween Contest was scheduled for October, we knew our beautiful Lena had to enter the "Most Glamorous" category. I designed "Lena's Ballroom Dancing Contestant Dress" with a gold beaded neckline. She was a sensation!

The dress is an easy knit for advanced beginner or intermediate knitters. Craft beads are knit into the neck and the front and back sections are worked separately, then sewn together. No sleeves needed, since this is a sleeveless ball gown! Just a single crochet around the armholes and unseamed side edges complete the look.

Your little ballroom dancer will look beautiful in her dress too, so give my design a try. I think you'll have a great time knitting this dress!
