Little Gardener's Pinafore Dress

Since I became a mom, I turn my creative energy to creating for my daghter. In my limited crafty time I like making original garmets and toys for her. I believe by creating with our hands we pour energy into each item and bring more love to the relationship with the recipient.
I knitted a yellow pinafore dress back in May using an interesting textured stitch pattern paired with thick yarn. Than I wrote down the pattern in five sizes from 3 mo to 2 yo.
I recommend it for knitters at intermediate level, since the unique stitch pattern might be challenging for newbies. The pattern is tech edited and tested by wonderful Ravelry users.
For the samples I used cotton yarn because it was made in May, but it will nicely work with worsted weight wool yarn. The smallest size use up just four skeins, so it is really quick to make.  
This pink one was made as a gift for my photographer cousin. This is 3mo size, but she uses for newborn photgraphy (of course not for tiny babies). 
So, and I also have big news with this one. I became published designer in a webzine! It was published in October issue of Knotions. It is such a huge step for me, introducing myself somewhere out of my blog is totally out of my comfort zone. I am thankful for the editor, Jody that she liked the pattern. And I am happy that I had the courage to take action.  

Oh, and the best part is yet to come! The pattern is available for **FREE**!

If you like the pattern, please share the love and add it to your favourites or queue it on Ravelry!

Wishing you a very nice Sunday!
