View Full Version : Purple Summer Dress

Here's the little dress for Lexi (age 2). It was a 2 day job this weekend. I used yarn called Jeannee from Plymouth. It calls itself worsted weight, but seemed thinner to me. I hope the dress isn't too small, but if it is, I have a spare great-neice who's just 1 year old, so it will still be wearable. I added the shiny beads in at the chest and hemline - always popular with moms of little girls

One thing I wish I could improve: the pattern says to increase 10 times evenly across the row. I used the KFB increase, and each one looks like a little lumpy mistake. I have used the make 1 before, but it seems to leave a little mark too. Any suggestions?

That is a lovely dress. Love the colour as well.
Sorry no suggestions for the increasing. I usually like to use M1 where you pick up the yarn between stitches and sort of twist it and then knit. Have you looked through the videos here I think there are a few different ways of increasing.
That little dress is just precious! Great idea with the beads. Love the color too.
My favorite increase when I don't want it to show is the invisible increase. Here's a link:
