Needlework: Knitted Baby Dress

Here is a cute little dress I knitted for my granddaughter.  It is made with the same yarn as a sweater set I knitted for her earlier,  seen below.  The pattern can be found in "Lovable Hand Knits, Infants to 4 Years" on It is called "Striped Poor Boy Dress, No. 3012 - I eliminated the stripes and added rosettes from Lion Brand Yarn, "Crocheted Rosettes/Flowers"
I made up the bag in the same pattern, k2,p2, as the dress.  
The matching hat is crocheted and from Lion Brand free patterns online, Floppy Brim Hat.  I added another rosette and took it in a bit on the top for the time being.   
This set is similar to patterns which can be found here on this blog.
I am linking to most of these BLOG PARTIES

That is absolutely gorgeous!!! The dress, hat, purse - all so cute and great yarn. Love it! I just finished my very first sweater ever - from a Lillie's Little Sweater (Cottage Creations)and am starting on the second. I'll have to look up your pattern. For anyone who wishes they knew how to knit, they just need to find someone who will teach them. Many knitters are more than willing to share their expertise. And don't give up. No one's born a knitter. It's true what they say about practice. :-)

Thank you for posting this. It inspires me!!

How amazing!!! Knitting seems so hard to me! I've knitted before - unfortunately all I know how to do are sheets - of the same stitch - that go on I'm so impressed with people that can actually knit / crochet SHAPES!

Thanks for joining the Tuesday Train!
