ELENI's DRESS

As knitters we know how fast our little ones outgrow the things we make for them. Therefore I wanted to design something they can wear for a long time. Since small children grow more in length than in chest circumference, the little dress just transforms into a tunic style top as they get older. It’s worked top down with a round yoke and is seamless. The little extra neck opening makes it easy to pull the dress over the head. (My kids alway hated to get stuck in a small sweater neck opening)
The pattern is written for 3 sizes (0-6months, 12months, 18 months - 2 years) and also includes a picture tutorial how to do a 2 colored cast on.
To celebrate the release of this pattern get 25% off using the promotion code ELENI in my ravelry store.





Make the smaller size with just one skein of worsted weight yarn. My cute model wears the 0-6 month dress even though she is over a year old. 


Yarn: 
1(2,2,2,2) skeins of Lismi Knits Magic Ball or Portland Gradient, color rainbow, worsted weight at approx. 220 yards a skein. 
I also just added my gradient dyed yarn, Portland Gradient, color rainbow to my Etsy shop. It's a worsted weight super-wash Merino, great for kids stuff.

I made a couple of little tank dresses for Baby Girl and yep, they eventually turned into cute tank tops!!!! It's nice when you get a little longer wear out of them.

I LOVE your rainbow tank!
