Hand Knitted Strawberry Shortcake Dress set!

Well, it’s FINALLY Done!!  lol

Not only was I challenged to begin with, with my concussion, But the pattern was written by an UK designer and I’m an American Irish girl!  I’ll get back to that here in a few, after I share the finished sweet set!

After months working on this ‘gem’, I’m quite pleased with it!

As you can see, I altered the pattern and created a more cap sleeve rather then the long.  I also changed the neck to white and didn’t use so many tiny Knitted strawberry flowers as it called for.  And I knitted the ‘Pips’ [strawberry SEEDS], which I like a lot more.

I used Cot-Lin yarn by Knit Picks  and love the subdued colorways.   They aren’t so shocking and defined red, white and green and just yummy.

The pattern calls for a size 6 and size 0 for the flowers, but I used size 2 Harmony circular needles for the flower petals and centers.

Speaking of Circulars-  This pattern is written for Flat work!  No, in the round.   I wish that was stated right up front, I had no idea until I bought the pattern and got into it!!  But that’s how I roll…should have asked questions, instead of diving in and assuming! lol  Maybe, that’s due to I’m still a Young knitter! haha

TIP for my American friends-  UK knitting Lingo as follows:

  • PIP= seed
  • yrn= YO or Yarn Over
  • stocking stitch= Stockinette

So of course, with Flat work, there’s a LOT of time intense seaming to be had, but the results are oh Great!

I loved working with the Cotton/Linen blend yarn and I just love, love the way it turned out!

I’ve started a couple more projects working with Anne Geddes Baby Sport yarn and talk about yummy…stay tuned!

Thank you for looking and be a Doll and tell me your thoughts below in the comment box :)

Hugs and Blessings,
