It would seem that Barbie et Mr Freeze were having a wee party ;-)

General numbers from Elmi, finishing touches from Dusala, pocket logic from Coucou with Dusala edging, logic for lined hem with continuing button bands from Vaudeville.

Buttons from textilegarden

Lined hems for cuffs to be able to roll them up more easily.

Double knitted hem.

Loulou is a beanstalk with insanely long arms. While I want her to be able to grow into it, I’ll need to tweak sizes.


Casting on for size 4 years

Round out front neckline more by adding 3 sets of short rows: repeat rows 3 + 4 once, and rows 7+8 two times

Start tuck at 10.5cm from back caston edge

2 more sets of raglan rows, increasing only on front and back

Cast on one more stitch under arms for a garter stitch faux seam

Slight A-line: increases 5cm after underarm cast on, then once more after 30th rows

Start pockets at 30cm length at back

Pocket lining: 30 rows

6 rows after pockets before starting setup for lined hem

Double knitted hem while continuing button bands, in the logic auf Vaudeville
13 rows on 2.75mm needles, BO purlwise on WS row (the only way to BO both button bands in the respective colour in this case).


Pick up one more stitch under arms for a garter stitch faux seam
