NOTE: If you downloaded your pattern on May 28, 2009 there is a problem with the increase row. The current PDF is correct. The file name of the correct PDF is Acerola.1.pdf.

Babies grow so quickly that many baby knits aren’t even worn for an entire season. This baby dress / toddler and child tank changes that! Put Acerola on your infant as a dress, and she can wear it later as a tank. Cute details, like a textured stitch pattern and a ruffled edge, make this a knit that will be treasured!

The PDF includes a tutorial on how to add an applied i-cord. The diamond pattern is written out and charted.

Why not knit a matching Confection Baby Shrug, also using Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed Cotton?

(Modeled as a tank by Iris, daughter of knitonmycat. Someday I hope to find an infant that is willing to model it as a dress!)
