Krissy in Blue – Dots and Chequers

22 Nov

Bonjour, mes amies!

I love this adorable outfit by Laurence of crochetloisirs.canalblog.com. I have been admiring it for ages and yesterday I bought some lovely dotty blue yarn that I thought would look great with it.

So here is Krissy wearing my adapted version of Laurence’s beautiful little dress for an Itty Bitty doll.

As knitting is a pain to rip back if you go wrong, I spent a long time working out the numbers of stitches I would need at each part of the dress before I started it and I am pleased to tell you that I got it right first time!

The blue yarn is Hayfield Bonus 4 ply in shade 854 (Baby Blue) and the new yarn is Katia Baby Fantasie shade 3111 (blanc/bleu). This knits up as 4 ply and was a bargain end of dye lot purchase from my local yarn shop. I used size 3 mm knitting needles.

Yes, yes, I know it is a little bit summery, but as StitchedUpMama pointed out yesterday, summer is coming in Australia!!! That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

Krissy looks beautiful in this very cute dress by Laurence.

Passez une bonne journée, à bientôt

    Summer is coming in Australia ? How lucky you are ! In Normandy, everyday brings us clouds, rain and wind. Krissly is lovely in her new dress. This colour fits her dark hair.
