Sundress for girls: getting started

We cast on the circular knitting needles the number of loops needed for the neck, connect them into a circle and knit an elastic band 2x2 3 cm high. Then we outline the raglan with a thread of a contrasting color. Suppose that there are 104 loops on the needles, then we put a mark on 1 loop, then put 21 loops on the armhole, mark 1 with a thread, put 29 loops on the front, mark 1, 21 on the second armhole, mark 1, 29 remain on the back. The loops marked with a contrasting thread will form a raglan, for this we knit 3. from one

We knit the bodice of the sundress with a paw pattern, you can alternate several colors of yarn every 2 rows of the pattern, as can be seen in the photo. When the width of the front corresponds to the half-girth of the chest (+2 cm), we remove the loops of the armhole on a contrasting thread with a needle and continue to knit the skirt of the sundress in a circle with the front stitch to the required length. So that the edge of the sundress does not bend, we knit the last rows with a garter stitch or stripes: 3 rows of purl, 3 facial, 3 purl. We close the loops freely, without tightening.

On the freed needles we transfer the loops of the armhole and knit an elastic band 2x2 3 cm wide, we carry out similar actions with the second armhole. Our knitted dress for the girl is ready, it remains to carefully steam it with a not too hot iron through the fabric.

Crochet sundress for girls: getting started

We knit a chain of air loops corresponding to the circumference of the chest (+ 3 cm). For a three year old girlabout 60 cm (=200 loops). We connect the chain into a circle and knit a row of double crochets. In the second row, we alternate 3 columns with a crochet, then 2 air loops. We knit about 20 rows with this pattern, after which we narrow the bodice to the armhole and knit it in front, forming a roll-out of the neck. We tie the thread from the side of the armhole and knit the left and right half of the back separately, leaving a slit for the fastener.

The skirt of the sundress can be knitted with openwork separately and sewn on, or it can be tied to the bottom row of the bodice. It must be remembered that the width of the skirt should be three times the volume of the bodice, then our outfit will be beautiful, like a real princess. We knit the skirt according to any pattern you like. We tie the armholes and the neck with a crustacean step or scallops, decorate the bodice of the sundress with ribbons and knitted flowers. Our dress for the girl is ready!
