Nearly FO - Little Niece's Dress

Elinor's Dress

When I came across this pattern on Ravelry, I thought it was one of the cutest baby knits I had ever seen. So naturally, I had to make one for my new niece, Elinor. Then I saw that Knit Picks had a new sock yarn that's both superwash and super-soft, super-duper! Hahaha!

Elinor's Dress - Full Length She's quite the little big'un, so I had to be careful not to make it too small. I'm glad most of the clothes I've given to my sister for her weren't newborn-sized, she'd have grown out of them nearly immediately!

Project Specifications - see it on Ravelry!

One of the nicest features of this design is that it's totally seamless, which I love. I have enough problems procrastinating weaving in the ends, it's not that hard but I just don't enjoy it at all. I'm definitely planning on knitting more baby clothes from Tora Frøseth, her designs are simple but so lovely and fun, all at the same time. (I'm thinking it will be Magda, another cute baby top/dress.)

Elinor's Dress - Button Detail

I'm not entirely sure how I ended up with the placket on the opposite side. I had to adjust the pattern so I knit the front section first, then bound off for an armhole. Next I knit the back, and then bound off for the second armhole. It wasn't too difficult to judge from the pictures what I should be doing, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what I screwed up! It wasn't too hard to deal with though, and I think it turned out just fine. Except for the opening being on the opposite side, you'd never know there was any difference from the written pattern, so I'm pleased I could work through my issues instead of letting them stop me. There's a bunch on Ravelry with the placket reversed like mine, so I feel a little bit better! :)
