Summer Into Fall

Easy-peasy cute apron-style dress that knits up in no time with an aran/worsted weight yarn. Can work for a going-back-to-school layered look, or as a sundress.
This fun pattern could be the basis for endless customizations: the ruffles on the straps and the tabs could be knit in a contrasting color, the ruffles could be shortened to a “cap sleeve” style, the dress can be made shorter for a tunic style etc…

Construction: This dress is worked seamlessly in the round, from the bottom-up, then the front and back are worked flat separately. Stitches are picked up at each side to work the garter side tabs, and along the straps to create the ruffles. The length of the dress is designed to be about mid-thigh, but the length can easily be shortened or lengthened.

Skills required: casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, I-cord edging (explained in pattern), yarn over, picking up stitches, binding off.
