Kalas is a perfect party and play dress for the little one – the word itself even means ”party” in Swedish!
This clean design is worked top down and completely seamless in aran weight yarn, finishing off sleeves as you go, and makes up a simple, playful and really quick knit. The neckline is closed up with a single button – choose yourself if you prefer it toward the back or front!
