Gudny Maria Hoskuldsdottir

for Istex - Iceland   2003

Book 23-20 Bara (ages 2 - 6)

This is a most charming dress for a little girl, worked traditionally in the Icelandic fashion. Circularly knit body and sleeves are joined at the yoke and then finished in the round. Underarm stitches are grafted together; we don't count this as 'sewing', so this piece is seam-free. You work the simple fair isle yoke colour pattern from a chart. A little crochet finishes the edges of the hem, cuffs, and neckline. The 'Empire'-style waist is just a 1/1 rib, working the K1's through back loops. Pretty and lively; sweet and easy.
