Three Barbie dresses, and a circular shawl, in the colours of the rainbow. The dresses have alternative tops in garter or stocking stitch.

All Sum Wear patterns have a mathematical/educational purpose. This one teaches the colours of the rainbow. Two of the dresses can also be used for counting as each stripe has one more ridge of garter stitch than the stripe before.

The circular skirt, and shawl, are both completely flat circles. You could adapt the shawl instructions to make a skirt with concentric circles.

The pattern includes a mini tutorial about knitting circles of all sizes.
