Knitting – Meadow Sweet Baby Dress – Free Pattern

meadow-dress-hat-6

This is another pattern from designer Marianna Mel on Ravelry.com.  The pattern was written to fit a baby of around 3 months, but I used #7 needles and Premier acrylic yarn (color – Cake) to make a dress to fit a baby 6-9 months old.

The skirt in the pattern is a simple, pretty lace, but I wanted to try out a pleated look using a knit 5/purl 2 garter stitch.

The hat is a basic pattern done in the knit 5/purl 2 design.

This is a good pattern for an advanced beginner and turns out so cute.  It should do well going into the spring months for the South Dakota Pine Ridge baby who receives it.

  1. How adorable that is. I really like the yarn color. I was looking at yarn today, looking for something like that. I was obviously in the wrong store!

  2. Oh, this is so cute!! I’ve been away from blogging due to computer problems so I’m just trying to catch up on the blogs I follow. This is beautiful, Lillian! Love the colors, too.
