50 posts in this topic

I have enjoyed this forum so much since I joined in January. I really appreciate all you who share your wonderful patterns with me. I designed this outfit for my granddaughter this weekend when I couldn't find a halter and shorts in a 12 month size. I want to share with all of you. This is my first pattern that I have designed so have patience with me if I made any mistakes. Thanks for looking.

Thank you for all the nice comments. This outfit could easily be made for different sizes by increasing or decreasing the number of stitches or by changing hook size. You could also use a different type of yarn if desired. Let me know if you have any problems with the pattern.:)

I saw your thread on the Babies section and came here to look at the pattern. I'm so glad I did - you didn't say there would be cute as pie pictures of her modelling the clothes! Such a pretty set and a cute baby to match.

could i maake these into flar pants?

 

If you want to make flared pants, just keep adding rows and when you get just below the knee add a couple of increase stitches every row until you get the length you want. :)

I made the shirt in a size 9-12 by changing the hook size, I used an E instead of an F hook. For the second color i used worst weight yarn instead of cotton, the main part of the shirt was done in white cotton though!!! It looks awesome!!!! Thanks you for the pattern!!!!!
