HOW TO SOFTEN STIFF YARN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcHU2h3SkrQ

 

 

BLOCKING: Basically there are 2 ways of blocking.

1.  Steam blocking: arrange item on a flat surface, hold steam iron above the surface, (not touching the surface), and  steam. Allow the item to dry in the shape desired.

 2.  Immerse in water, and squeeze water out, or spray with water. Arrange item on a thick bath towel, shape as desired, allow to dry undisturbed.


MATERIALS:

Worsted weight yarn (Red Heart Super Saver used in this design, see above to soften yarn.) (Yardage below)

One pair 6 mm (US 10) knitting needles, (worked flat)

Yarn needle

Buttons optional

 

INSTRUCTIONS: Gauge: 3.5 stitches and 4 rows = 1 sq. inch

    26 rows  or until the dress is approx. 10 inches long.

     as it is  worked in the last row.

**NOTE:  Do not sew the ribbing section together, end the seam at the row below the ribbing.

 



STRAPS:

Sew the straps onto the back of the dress, matching the outside of the straps to the end of the ribbing on the sides.

 


Front strap options:  

Overlap the straps slightly, and sew buttons on through both layers to attach the straps to the dress (red dress at the top of pattern); or
