PATTERN DETAILS

Double crochet stitches gathered at the bust make up the bodice of this strappy halter, with contrasting popcorn stitches to emphasize the empire waist. Joined lace square motifs cascade downward into a trapezium skirt, its asymmetrical hemline enhanced with a light shell edging for a lovely drape. Slender straps trimmed with tiny picot stitches echo the skirt edging, and a tasseled belt is threaded into the waist for a wonderful gypsy effect. This lovely piece is available in sizes 2-4 (6-8, 10-12) years, and is made with #0 Lace (#1 Super Fine, #2 Fine) yarn. Instructions are the same for all sizes; the different yarn weights and corresponding gauges are essential in altering the size. IMAGINE THIS: The dress can be worn as a poncho when the shoulder straps are omitted. The dress can also be worn with or without an underskirt with contrasting top, or as a beach cover.

I am a published knitwear and crochet designer, specializing in children’s clothing. I love coming up with designs that are new and different, and I find inspiration in everything and everyone around me … my family, children, imagination, yarn, textures, nature … In the past several years, I’ve created and sold hundreds of custom-made (mostly one of a kind) items online. However, one day I realized that I have too much on my plate and couldn’t keep up with all orders anymore. I thought if I started writing patterns, I could make something just once and let other knitters and crocheters make the garments by themselves, and even sell finished projects made from my patterns. I really feel that it was the right direction to take, and I’ve been so blessed by this experience. Somebody else making something out of what I’ve created—that’s what makes me happiest! I hope that you will enjoy working with my patterns as much as I have enjoyed designing and writing them for you.
