My sweet friend Mardi sent me this yarn form Australia and in thinking about what to do with it, I was struck with a vision of this dress.
On a couple of occasions I’ve tried to write out the pattern. But every single time I’ve gotten frustrated with having to take the time to stop and write out each step along the way.
This is just a little preview for you. I’d like to knit it again myself once more before I send it out into the world. I would also like the feedback of my friends who have offered to serve as test knitters for me.
For now let me tell you a little bit about it. I wanted to create a simple, yet highly adaptable knit.
It’s totally reversible, with the front and back having different shaping for a different look, one side having a wider, higher cut and the other narrower and lower (Màiri is wearing it here with the narrower, lower cut side to the front).
In these pictures it’s being modeled as a baby sundress. It also works as a jumper. I see it as a once size fits most 6 months to ??. I’ve been trying it on some kids of different ages and it seems to fit the average 3 year old tunic style and up to seven years as a tank top or vest.
