Pattern Details

Sweet and simple and super-swingy... The idea was to give that gauzy, "tutu" feel while keeping this top modern and practical. The result is not too frilly but definitely girly! This top is knit seamlessly from the top down. First it is worked flat with an I-cord edging, then it is worked in the round. Stitches are picked up around the body to create a welt, then the ruffled skirt is worked in the round to the hem. The sleeves are worked in the round. An attached I-cord and an I-cord button loop are worked on the neck portion. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY long-tail cast on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, picking up stitches, working a welt (explanations and link to an online tutorial provided,) working an I-cord edging, working an attached I-cord and an I-cord button loop closure (explanations provided). GAUGE MC: 17 sts x 26 rounds = 4 inches or 10cm in stockinette stitch in the round using larger needles, after blocking CC: 18 sts x 24 rounds = 4 inches or 10cm in stockinette stitch in the round using larger needles, after blocking SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 3mo (6mo, 12mo, 18mo // 2yo, 4yo, 6yo, 8yo) To fit chest: 16 (17, 18, 19 // 21, 23, 25, 26.5) inches or 40.5 (43, 46, 48 // 53.5, 58.5, 63.5, 67.5) cm.
