I was planning to knit a dress to Yr from Nøstebarn's pattern. But I was not a fan of the open back solution to an active little girl.
I wanted to use some of the New Zealand fine merino wool bought in November - StrikkehelgStavanger.
And I wanted to force myself to use the knitting machine - and calculate the size/and rewrite the pattern for my own benefit.
1) The dress curled! Where I did not want it to curl. And yes, it kept curling after wash ;-(
SO- I picked up the stiches at the bottom and knitted 5 cm in a simple hole pattern. No more curling.
2) The dress did not have pockets! Grandma's little friend told me that she needed pocket. One pockets added.
