Very cute, not frilly or ruffley, just a plain simple dress :-)

Lovely little dress!Thank you so much! Just what I was looking for.It's the perfect gift for my friend's baby. The pattern is very clear and easy to follow! I've just finished the dress, the most difficult part is to find the perfect buttons... Yes, you inspired me to knit for more babies!
Best wishes!

Thank you,

This is adorable! Thanks for providing this pattern for free. I just made this for a classmate who is having a baby girl next month. I love how modern it is!

Kelly said...

Nancy, it is a newborn size (its written at the top of the pattern).
I'm sorry I forgot to check the guage, so I am not really sure.

I like the look of this dress, but would like to make it in a larger size (say 12 months). Do you have any suggestions on how I might do this? Thanks.

Kelly said...

I would try using a larger hook, maybe an "H" and worsted weight yarn.

How many skeins of yarn did this require?
