Let’s face it - little girls love wearing dresses; and playing in the dirt, climbing trees and jumping in puddles!
My little princess wants to be in a dress all year round so I needed a pretty and simple dress that could go over tights or leggings to keep her warm while she is off having fun.
Mud Princess gives you the option of dress or tunic length; long or short sleeves, gathered or flared cuffs. Perfect for layering and designed to show off beautiful gradient yarns to their full advantage.

Knit seamlessly from the top down you will start with a circular yoke featuring garter stripes. The sleeves are separated and held while you knit to your desired length then picked up and knit from the top down in the round.
With so many design options you can easily knit up several Mud Princesses for your special little princess.

note: yardage estimates are for long sleeve/ dress version so short sleeves or tunic length will use less. Please also be mindful that substituting yarns will affect your total yardage. I recommend having an extra skein on hand just in case.
