Knitting Pattern - Baby Lacy Dress and Shrug Newborn-2 years
Knitting pattern for a very pretty lacy dress and shrug for babies and toddlers aged newborn to 24 months and is perfect for those special occasions.
Knitted in double knitting yarn. There is an illustrated pattern to follow which is colour-coded for each size.
Garter stitch is used for the yoke of the sleeveless dress which makes this design easy to knit as there are no separate edgings for the armholes and neckline.
The Shrug is knitted in one piece until the sleeves and a pretty lacy edging is added to the front.
Any Double Knitting Yarn (8 ply) can be used as long as it matches the tension 22 stitches and 28 rows to 10 cm (4 in) over stocking stitch on 4 mm needles

I first started to design clothes for my children when they were younger and went on to sell garments through shops and craft fairs. I also taught the use of machine knitting and knitwear design. I later followed a career in IT, but I now have grandchildren and whilst hand knitting for them was inspired to start designing and creating knitting patterns again.
