Fun to knit and to wear, Seamless Flower Dress has an unusual construction - you work upper front and back from the centre of the flower outwards, then add a top down skirt and raglan sleeves - and you do it all seamlessly. The dress can be made in wool, cotton or acrylic; with long or short sleeves, so you can make a warm or cold weather version - or both.

A t-shirt version and a baby hat pattern are also available:
