1102 Orchids (18 months - age 4)

"This wonderful summer dress is great for those warm beach days!" say the designers. "An easy project for your vacation knitting bag." It is very simple and logical to make, working up from the hem in the round and then dividing for front and back. Since "the shoulder straps are meant to be tied", there's no sewing (fantastic). The French knots are a gorgeous little addition at the hem and are well described in writing. The addition of the little ribbon at the shoulders is a charming one, and provides lots of opportunities for more colour play.
