Charm Dresses for Barbie

My latest design — Charm Dresses for Barbie. This is one style; there are two more, one with a different neckline, the other shorter and fuller. I’ve knit them in Rowan wool/cotton, but many DK or sport weight yarns would work.

My challenge hasn’t been designing the dresses. It’s been writing the patterns. I’ve got a couple of rows that are easy to knit but challenging to explain clearly — and I believe in being clear. So many designers assume knitters understand what they’re talking about, when in fact the poor knitter is struggling to make sense of it.

I plan to make this pattern available for sale later this week on Ravelry. You can also check back here for a link to the pattern once it’s published.
