Baby Dress Completed
Fig 1
Hello friends,

Finally the yoke type sweater mentioned in my last post is completed. It looks so beautiful!! (Fig 1) that the cute grand daughter will look gorgeous in this.

I started with 74 sts, leave 6 sts for button band and buttonhole band. The design I have selected for the increase strips is very simple but beautiful. See fig 2.

Started with 74 sts then 6 rows in Garter stitch as a neck band.

As I wished that the designed strips should appear more in the front portion so I divided the sts as,
74= 6 button band + 4 front + 6 design+ 5 sleeve + 6 design + 20 back+ 6 design+ 5 sleeve+ 6 design + 4 other front + 6 button hole band. Put markers.

Fig 3




















For increase, take yarn over before and after each marker
For the design, fig 3,  (describe about 6 sts left for design only) all other sts as for Stockinette stitch,
R 1: YO, K 1, P 1, K 2, P 1, K 1, YO
R 2: All P
R 3: YO, K1, P1, K1, YO, K1, P1, K1, YO,
R 4: All P
R 5: YO, K1, P1, Slip 1, K2, Pass the slip st over these knitted 2 sts, P1, K1, YO,
R 6: All P

After 8 times increase the total sts became 202. See fig 2. Four rows are worked as all K.

Then out of 202 sts 39 + 39 are kept for two sleeves and they are bind off. The remaining 124 sts are worked together. Here 10 sts are increased uniformly. ( But later I thought that I should increase more sts for better shape).

After the total height for neck band is 12 inches 8 rows of Garter st are worked.

Then all sts are bind off. Buttons are sewed at proper places and the result is as in fig 1.

ETC: Enjoy the Creativity.

Baby Dress:
Fig 1
Hello friends,

I know that I am posting after a long gap. In between I have a great news of the arrival of my new grand daughter "Kanika". My daughter in law gave birth to a cute baby on 11th Feb. and I am little bit busy in that.

No need to say that I am in USA (Phoenix) and enjoying the time with my grand son and newly born grand daughter.

I arrived here on 18th Jan and since then made many baby sets and I will publish them as the time permits. Here is the last baby dress I have started and is incomplete till today.

When we come to USA, shift ourselves, we cannot bring all things with us, for example all yarns, all needles, all show buttons etc and then we fall in little bit trouble. I am in same phase. Crossing so many hurdles and enjoying the creativity.

This Vardhamaan yarn I brought with me from India so that my free time should not be waste. Moreover it suits a cute pink baby, so I decided to make baby dress. The pattern is not new but I have selected a new design around the increases at four places. My yoke is about to complete. Let us see, when I finish this.


Till then ETC, Enjoy the Creativity.
