Zita is a sweet dress for a sweet girl!
With a easy to knit mock cable bodice, a full and twirly ruffled skirt and options of capped or ruffled sleeves, this dress has everything a little girl wants!
Designed to be knit with either a wool or cotton blend yarn, this dress is multi-seasonal and easy to wear, as well as being interesting, but not difficult to knit. The 20stitch gauge makes this perfect for either a DK weight yarn, or a light worsted!
Knit from the top down, and in the round, this dress utilizes classic raglan increases, and a scooped neckline. Mock cables are knit without a cable needle.
Zita is designed to fit with slight positive ease, please choose the size closest to the chest of the child, ease has been added into the pattern.
