A pretty and practical dress for babies up to 18 months.
Worked in soft 100% Superwash Merino it’s a little bit of luxury with the practicality of being machine washable at 40°C.
This pattern is suitable for beginners. Using only trebles it is crocheted in one piece. No seams to sew up!
It is gently A-line with extra room at the back for big fat nappy bottoms. The larger sizes have wider, stronger straps to cope with the demands of crawling babies.
