|Lati Vamp and Pipos Rooney in a dress pattern by Shelley Selwood.|
I ran across this cute dress pattern online, maybe Flickr. It is a free pattern from The Little Owl Blog by Shelley Selwood. It's listed at the bottom of the knitting patterns page under "Free Lati Yellow Pattern." What else?
I had not knit in nearly 2 decades, but I picked it up fairly easy. That's how easy this little dress is. It will fit Lati Yellow, Pukifee and Pipos Rooney. Easy to make in just an afternoon, even if you don't know how to knit. Just pick up a basics book from your local library.
After making several in different yarns and sizes of needles, I worked on a pattern for the little hat to go with the dress. It came out cute! And again, very simple.
Here are the directions, but please keep in mind that this is my first pattern. Let me know if you are confused, and I will try to help.
Fine (2) weight yarn
Size 2 (2.75 mm) needles
Pom-pom maker, 1 inch (25 mm) diameter size
CO 30 sts
Stockinette st for 8 rows
K2 INC 1, repeat to end
P 1 row
K5 INC 1, repeat to end
P 1 row
Stockinette st for 11 rows
Seed stitch 2 rows
Cast off in pattern (pearl)
Leave a long end on yarn, and use it to join the sides together with a narrow seam. Tie off. Then weave the yarn in and out through the top (cast on) and edge and tighten to gather closed. Tie off. Make pom-pom as directed. Attach to top of hat.
So Here is that pattern in PDF for you to download and print.
