As of December 2014, this pattern is available for free. Enjoy!
Wee and Warm in the Winter Winds – an intriguing dress or tunic for the smaller girls, featuring a top down raglan, and a short row skirt knitted sideways and knitted on as you go. All edges are done while knitting, so when done, you’re really done! Worsted weight yarn turns this into a quick and relaxing knit, and you’ll be finished in no time!
