As knitters we know how fast our little ones outgrow the things we make for them. Therefore I wanted to design something they can wear for a long time. Since small children grow more in length than in chest circumference, the little dress just transforms into a tunic style top as they get older. It’s worked top down with a round yoke and is seamless. The little extra neck opening makes it easy to pull the dress over the head.

Yarn:
1(2,2,2,2) skeins of Lismi Knits Magic Ball or Portland Gradient, color rainbow, worsted weight at approx. 220 yards a skein.
Needles:
Circular needles US 6 / 4 mm (or size to obtain gauge), 16″ long. For the body stitches you might want to switch to a 24″ length.
1 button, needle to sew in ends
5 stitch markers, crochet hook

The pattern also includes a picture tutorial how to do a 2 colored cast on.
