When we play with lacework, we create textures reminiscent of lace from other eras. Summer allows dresses to be worn with lacework creating unique and timeless garments that stand out in the closets of the little ones.

Sizes: (6-12 months, 12-18 months, 2y, 4y)(6y, 8y, 10y, 12y)

Knitting pattern for girls. Dress-top-sweater Lore Collection.

Decide what you prefer to knit for your little girl with this pattern: a top, a dress or a warmer sweater.

The openwork is my drawing pen. The increases, decreases and the different dots mark the lines to follow to paint my blank canvas. In this canvas I present you some wild flowers of a spring field to move you every time you see it. Decide where you want to put it, whether on a top, dress or sweater crop.

In the pattern you will find the instructions to make the top, dress or sweater from size 6-12 months to size 12 years. You decide if you want to leave it as a top or continue until you have a dress or add the sleeves. Your little one’s opinion may help you :). My daughter loves the dresses.

Pattern for adults and children

This pattern is part of my Mini&Me knitting collection in which you will have the version adapted for the little ones of the house and also for adults in top / sweater version. If you already have one of the two patterns, use the code that appears on the last page and get the other pattern with a 20% discount.

It is a very visual pattern, as it is fully charted by size. On a single sheet you will have all the stitches to knit. There is no row by row description of the instructions. Instructions about each of the stitches shown on the chart is provided.

I do recommend that you have an intermediate level of knitting, so you don’t get frustrated. The openwork is formed by knitting in the round to the armhole.

The pattern has been tech edited and tested by several testers to make sure they could follow it without any problems.

If you want more information go to the construction notes, what do you need to know, materials and gauge tabs above.

Construction notes:

The top is worked in the round up to the armhole. Continue working front and back flat. Sew the shoulder seams and knit the neck and sleeve ends.

If you want to knit the sweater, work the sleeves.

If you want to knit the dress, pick up the sts at the bottom of the top and work the skirt in the round.
