I used jaeger roma yarn in pink and purple. Size 6 needles.
A series of increases on the skirt helped make it twirly.
As always there was lots of running.
And a little color work on the front.
This dress was so much fun to knit, precisely because it wasn't a pattern. It gave me a small taste of design on a large scale. I would really like to branch out a bit more into designing things to fit myself. I am just trying to learn, and practice if you will, as much as possible with knits for my kids. I promise there are some things in the works for myself. I just keep thinking about how fast my babes are growing and I find myself casting on again before they are all grown up.
So while I keep forging ahead in my quest for knowledge on designing my own knits, any tips for where I should look?
