Notes

So happy with the result - adore the yarn I chose & the overall style of the pattern.
Now… the pattern. It only came in one size: 0-3mths - WHAT? One size? You have got to be kidding me but flicking through the rest of the pattern in the book, everything only has one size! (why? I do not know.)
Anyway, to make the dress fit, I actually knitted it on bigger needles, using 4mm instead of the smaller size normally needed for sock yarn. ALSO, the pattern says that it is a dress but if you follow the pattern, it only knits it into a tunic size, so get a ball of wool with at least 400yards length to it & add another 10cm to the length otherwise it’s just a top.
The yarn knits up beautifully, I had always wanted to buy a Zauberball & so glad I chose this for the dress, it’s soft & the colours are divine!
