I finished this yesterday. You'll see the model doesn't look very pleased...because I told her she couldn't wear it outside LOL

She sure is miffed. She is beautiful with that gorgeous hair colour and those expressive eyes. The dress looks really cute on her. What pattern did you use? Great job (once you let her wear it, mean Mommy LOL)!

I completely forgot to put the pattern :doh: It's the Sugar Plum Sundress found here (http://soulfulhuesknits.blogspot.com/2007/10/kids-knit-sundress-soulful-hues-pattern.html) I used KnitPick's Twist yarn in Cotton Candy. I had to adjust the pattern, since she used worsted weight, and I used DK

That face is priceless! The sun dress is beautiful, no wonder she wants to wear it outside--to show it off!

Wenda: I have a question for you. My DGD takes a size 5 (not with a T at the end). Should I add extra stitches to this pattern? Perhaps make my CO 94 instead of 84? What do you think? I have to try to find lavendar and pink cotton in worsted weight, or if you would assist me, in DK weight cotton.

I used DK weight cotton blend (KnitPick's Twist). I cast on 102 for DD, and she wears a 4T, 5 at the most right now. There's room for her to grow too, but the ribbing at the top, plus the straps, keep it from looking too loose. I would suggest, with the DK weight, to go with either 100 or 104. Because I ended my rounds with K2 and the rounds started with K2, so it makes a K4 just at the join. Not a big deal, but still. Oh, and I used size 6 and 10 needles rather than 7 and 11, but that was just me winging it LOL

For the st count on worsted weight, I don't think you would have to change it, or not by much, because the rib st is stretchy and she says it's for size "4/5ish". What I did with mine, since my st count was a guesstimate, was after the ribbing, I had dd try it on it wasn't too snug nor too loose, so I kept on.

Thanks Wenda, I CO for this dress yesterday using Bernat Cottontots. My DGD is wearing a size 5 so I CO 94 stitches. It's a fast knit, I already have 7 inches knit. The colourway I am using is called Very Berry. It's going to be quite summery when it's finished!

What an adorable little dress and little girl! Maybe you could let her wear it outside with a turtleneck?? C'mon mom! :teehee:

I tried that, after the pic was taken. I said, that if she wore stockings and a long-sleeved shirt underneath, then she could keep it on. Being as stubborn as her mama, she informed me that it was a sundress and had to be worn all by itself.:roll:
