Kirsi's Christmas Dress
Muti Dress by Taiga Hilliard Designs
18 months
Needles & yarn
US 6 - 4.0 mm
Malabrigo Yarn Sock
1.2 skeins = 528.0 yards (482.8 meters), 120 grams
  • Gauge: 6.5 stitches x 8.5 rows = 1 inch (ITR)

  • Skirt measures 13 inches from the top of the seed stitch band to the bottom.

  • Seed stitch band measures 19 inches around.


  • I accidentally cast on the wrong number of stitches under the arms, so I did two rounds of increases for the skirt to get to the correct stitch count.

  • For the 18 month size, the knit-purl sequence required to keep the seed stitch band in seed stitch was off in the pattern starting at Row 27. I just ignored those instructions for the last 4 stitches and kept the band in the already established seed stitch pattern.

  • Bound off sleeves with a size 8 needle.

  • I used this bind off (Version A) for the bottom of the skirt.

The M1 increase in this pattern is bothering me. It leaves a little hole. I don’t know if that was intentional or not on the part of the designer. Usually, when I execute this particular increase, I knit through the front of the stitch.

Knitting was finished on 8/30.
