Oriental Lily

I just finished knitting up the cutest dress ever. I plan to knit this one again the next time I need a gift for a baby girl. It’s the cutest thing ever. It also took no time at all to knit. I used 221.5 yards, 69 grams of a 100 gram skein of Stylecraft Merry Go Round in color 3142 and for the wait band, arm cuffs and skirt cuff I used  57.3 yards which is 16 grams of a 50 gram skein of Sirdar DK in color 197. I used both 4mm (US6) and 3.75mm (US5) needles and the stitch definition is very nice.

This has got to be the cutest store sample we’ve got right now. It’s a free pattern, Oriental Lily by Georgie Hallam. Very well written and comes in many sizes (newborn to child size 10).

I made the newborn size and it was tried on by 8 lb 4 oz Sienna and it fits perfectly. The sizing is perfect.

Very cute! I am sure Sienna is faking that indifferent expression ;)
