  1. You said you used two different colors From Shaefer yarns for this dress? So other than Althea Gibson what was the color?

  2. It is only worked with the one colour Althea Gibson but I divided the skein into two balls and alternated which skein I used for each row to prevent pooling.

  3. I updated the tip blurb to better explain this as I can see that it was misleading :) xo M

  4. I love this cute little dress and would like to make it for a baby shower gift, however, I am new to knitting (2 years) and just want to know what knitting level it would be before I purchase your pattern.

  5. HI there, I would say that this pattern is beginner to intermediate, knitting in the round, simple lace, cast on and off with some shaping. :) thanks Meghan

  6. what length would you suggest for a 4T tunic? should I just skip the straight knit at the bottom, going from the lace straight to decreases?
    Thanks

  7. Hi Barb, To make the 4t into a tunic length I would remove 3 inches of length from the main body. To do this work only 13 rnds even between decreases instead of 18 and it will remove 3 inches of length if you are working at the same row gauge as the pattern. Thanks! Meghan

  9. I have purchased the pattern and yarn and am eager to get started as this is so cute. I have three friends pregnant girls. I am having trouble with the cast on. I do not have access to the knitting almanac so can you tell me what the cast on is called so I can look it up. Thank you.

  10. Hi Deborah, the Cast on used is a long tail cast on, the technique detailed in the pattern notes is called casting on casting off otherwise known as a sewn bind off and that is for finishing the neckline. Hope this helps! you can always email me at the address located on the bottom of every pattern page. thanks Meghan
