Lion Brands Vanna's Choice Baby acrylic yarn
What was your inspiration?
Was working my first craft fair one weekend and had just found this adorable pattern, so I worked it up at the fair, knowing you can never have enough little girl dresses hanging around for sale as cute as this one. The headband I just whipped up myself, and is not included in the pattern.
What are you most proud of?
Its so cute.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I made a few very slight variations:
*This project was made with medium worsted weight yarn that calls for a size I hook, rather than the size yarn and hook called for in the instructions. Doing this made the final piece a larger sizer than what it states, which is what I wanted.
*Rather than one side being left open as a pinafore is, I allowed a few rows open for buttoning/unbuttoning, and then joined the two sides together and kept crocheting row upon row around and joining as I went. This made it more of a dress than a pinafore.
*If I followed the last row per the instructions, it would have appeared too bulky, esp with the heavier yarn. I did something like this to add a finishing touch to it that would compliment it: sc, ch 2, (sc, ch1) 3x in ch sp, ch 2 around.
