And doesn't Penelope look adorable! She's a year and a half old, I knit the pattern in the size for 2 year olds, and left the shoulder seam open until she tried it on so we could make sure it fit perfect.
This is the knitting project which I am most proud of to date. Not only did it turn out perfect, but it required a lot more work than usual. Why? because I decided to knit it in Red Heart Super Saver, a worsted weight yarn, rather than the recommended Anne Geddes Baby, a DK weight yarn. Which means that I had to swatch and adjust stitch and row counts throughout. You can see some of my notes in the two images below.
Ooof look at that, the white yarn turned out to be a lot larger than the orange.
At the end of the day, I couldn't be happier with how this project turned out, and I know Krista and Penelope were happy too.
I plan to eventually knit this pattern a second time, and provide my notes so that anyone who wanted to knit it in the much less expensive Red Heart Super Saver could have a go at it without all the extra work.
I love this so much!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for all of your comments! I plan on knitting the fox dress again soon (once I finish a half dozen or so other projects) so I can write up my comments for using the larger yarn.Delete
