Sunshine Lollipops

June 02, 2014







Here's Kit modeling her new dress, Sunshine Lollipops, knit top down in one piece in Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK.  The dress will fit any 18" girl doll and I guarantee it's super simple.  It's begun by knitting back and forth until you join in the round at the skirt.  The sweet puffy sleeves and picot hems are easy peasy.  If you have a little girl to knit doll clothes for, I hope you'll give this dress and yarn a try.  Baby Silk Merino DK is lovely to knit, so soft and bouncy, and this little dress will give you a good excuse to give it a try.  (2/4/15) I've updated this page to include a pdf pattern you can easily print out.

    1. Hi Janny, I don't know how to get a hold of you so I hope you come back here for the answer. You will be done with the buttonhole band when you join in the round. You will knitting the buttonhole band and the button band together, so 8 stitches become 4 stitches and then continue knitting all around every round for your skirt. So, you will have 3 needles, one for each placket and one as your working needle. Your working needle will pick up the first st. of the buttonhole band and the first stitch of the button band and knit them as one. Do this 3 more times, the placket is finished and skirt is begun.

    1. Hi Beth. I have been out of town so sorry for the late response. I hope you come back here for your answer because blogger does not let me email directly to comments. You should have 30 stitches after you finish row 15, but if you have more or less, it won't be a problem. It will still work out fine.

  7. I am also having trouble on row 15. I followed the pattern get the stich count for the sleeves is 24 not 30. Am I missing something?

    1. Hi! Maybe you are not doing the knit front, back, front again (KFBF). Don't worry if it's not exact, it is a puffy sleeve and it will be more or less puffy depending on how many stitches you have. It will still turn out fine!
