Have fun knitting pattern rainbow dress for girl. It’s knitted! We are usually used to see these rainbows with crochet. If you feel like trying this knitting technique, this rainbow dress pattern is for you.
To shape the rainbow we use the German short rows technique, in which we will be knitting up to a few stitches before the end. Don’t worry about it, in the pattern there is a row by row video of how to do it.
Let your little one choose the colors she likes the most. I’m sure she’ll love the result. You can knit it with a more summery yarn and combine it with short-sleeved shirts or knit it with a wool and have a dress for the winter.
This pattern is suitable for a beginner level of knitting. If you have some basic notions of knitting, purl, increases and knitting in the round, you will be able to knit it without any problems. We start knitting a rainbow and from there, we will go down knitting the waist and the skirt.
In the tabs above you have more information about the materials needed and what gauge you will have to obtain to get the measurements of the knitting pattern rainbow dress girl.
I hope you enjoy it, you knitting it and your little one wearing it. 🙂
