Violet Dress

May 30 2016 – Holly

We have the most darling dress to share with you today! The Violet Dress is a super sweet and simple pattern that is available to download for free via Ravelry. Our shop sample was knitted up in the colourful Cassia Prints by Louisa Harding in the beautiful shade 506, and what a perfect match they make! Knitted up with 3 balls(?) to get the toddler size(?) Violet Dress Kids Knitting Pattern It's simple, top-down construction includes garter stitch straps, decorative eyelet increases down the center front and back, and is finished off with a garter hem. The skirt flares out steadily towards the bottom, giving it a lovely shape. This little dress is a great opportunity to showcase a variegated yarn; with a full stockinette skirt, it's a great canvas for some fun colours. The simple design leaves room for plenty of creative freedom, perhaps using a contrast color for the straps and bodice? Adding a decorative stitch at the hem? This pattern is very straight forward and would be easy enough to alter, even for those knitters without much experience knitting garments. No button bands or sleeves means quick and easy knitting, a great little project for summer! Louisa Harding Cassia Prints Violet Dress We just love the Cassia Prints for kids knits, with it's cheerful, variegated shades, and easy to care for wool/nylon blend. It's a DK weight that stands up well to wear, which means it's also great for a cosy pair of socks. The colourways range from warm pinks and yellows, to cool blues and greens, all blending together giving it a hand painted look. Pop by the shop any time and check out the colourways in person, photos just don't do them justice! What projects do you have in your queue for the summer? Have you knitted with Cassia Prints yet?
