I just started a dress for my yet to be born granddaughter. It is so beautiful! You knit a lace for about 3", then stockinette to the yoke, back to lace for the yoke and a simple, three row garter neckband. The dress closes in the back with three pearl buttons.........I'm doing it in mint. I am just so excited about it. This is a REAL break from socks for me.
