What was your inspiration?
I thought this particular self-striping sock yarn would make a really cute dress for Felicity, so I made this dress as a birthday present for my daughter. I loved how the pretty floral pattern emerged as I knit.

The pattern includes links to video demonstrations of the more advanced techniques.
