Hugs and kisses cables adorn the skirt of this fun dress for little girls. Hannah's Hugs is worked in DK yarn from the hem to the shoulders and is knit in one piece to the underarms, including the bodice cord casing. Front and Back are then completed individually and shoulders are joined with a 3-needle bind off. Puffed sleeves are worked separately in the round from the hem to the shoulder, then set in to the armholes. Finishing touches include picot hems on the sleeves, neck and front edges. The
contrasting color edging around the neck and sleeves and along the front edge is worked last with fingering/sock weight yarn, and can be accomplished either by knitting or crocheting. Add an i-cord or crocheted cord to run through the bodice casing, then add some sassy buttons for an adorable dress that your
little girl will love to wear.
Instructions are written and charted. Pattern includes schematic diagram for sizing.
