Shades of Summer Dress
This dress was designed to flatter little toddler bodies. It is knitted completely in the round as most of my projects are.
3-6 months (14-15 inches)
6-12 months (15-16 inches)
2-3T (18-20 inches)
4-5T (20-22 inches)
5-6T (22-24 inches)
6-7T (23-25 inches)
The bodice and skirt are knitted from different weight yarns.
Bodice gauge is 21 sts per 4 inches in pattern.
Skirt gauge is 23 sts per 4 inches in stockinette stitch.
Skirt gauge is not that important, and a range of different weight yarns can be substituted with ease.
Note on yarn (please read it is important!!!!):
The project was designed with cotton yarn in mind. If however wool is chosen, it will be recommended to go up a size. Cotton stretchiness was accounted for in the pattern design (2 inches of negative ease are incorporated into the design), and wool on the other hand has a lot of elasticity and memory.
Cotton Joy yarn is available once again, but from a different distributor this time (Diamond Yarns). Enquire at your local yarn store. Diamond Yarns picked up a few yarn lines from Lana Gatto and Filtes King along with other brands.
Happy knitting everyone!
