A Sweet Toddler Dress

I saw the sample in the store and knew I just had to make the Toddler Dress for Gracie. I cast on for it while at Stitches and I finished it last week, so it took a month. I was not monogamous to the project but nearly. I made the 18 month size because Gracie will be 18 months this summer, however, I think it came out a little big. Won't it look cute with a little turtleneck and tights though maybe this fall? It's knit with Plymouth Baby Bunny which is 60% Pima Cotton, 30% modal and 10% angora. It's a little fluffy but oh so soft! I chose not to add the flower because I thought it would get torn off with those little inquiring fingers.


I don't know how the colors will come out on the computer but to clarify I knit it in celery green and white, color # 206.



The only big change I made to the pattern is that I went down 2 needle sizes for the bodice and I started with a row of single crochet before I crocheted the picots.

Oh, how totally darling! I love having a grandson, but it sure would be nice to have a little girly girl too! Call me greedy!
