Chloë’s Dress is a little girl’s dress that is knitted from the hem to the underarms, circularly. The bodice is knitted back and forth; the sleeves are picked up and knitted circularly. Different knitting stitch patterns are used in the bodice to give the effect of a smocked

It is finished in a knitted I-cord bind-off and also has a dainty knitted
picot hem. The simple seed pattern, the full skirt and puffed sleeves were chosen to give a feminine and dainty, yet sturdy, look.

The pattern allows for 2” of ease.


This design is for intermediate knitters.
