Simply Sweet Knitted Toddler Dress
Disclaimer; I do not own this pattern . It was designed by Julia Howe and was written for the The Knit Kit book. It was originally named Simply Sweet. There are slight changes/substitutions to the original pattern, but only with the needles, yarn and some of the measurements as the yarn needed for this project (Pingouin Pingofine) has been discontinued.
