One piece construction Instructional Video link for the baltic trim (You Tube) This dress is by far my favorite design! The dress or tunic top begins at the center with the baltic trim. Nothing difficult - just knitting and purling while alternating yarn colors (You Tube video link included with pattern). From there, you simply knit down the skirt to the desired length. Work an easy ruffle and bind off. Stitches are then picked up from the other side of the baltic trim (easy to see and pick up due to the 2 colors being worked) and then it's knit up to the top ending with a 3-needle bind off.
