The first of five Christmas outfit pieces is complete!
I love it. It’s absolutely beautiful.
I used about 1.2 hanks of Malabrigo Sock in “Boticelli” and size 6 needles. My gauge came in at 6.5 stitches x 8.5 rows = 1 inch. Still smaller than what the pattern called for, and I used needles two sizes bigger!
The skirt measures 13 inches from the top of the seed stitch band to the bottom of the hem. The seed stitch band measures 19 inches around.
I chose two white flower buttons for the back of the dress. I didn’t want to go with anything Christmas-y because I’d like her to be able to wear this dress for more than one occasion.
Instead of moving straight to Eva’s Christmas dress, I’ve decided to make Eva a winter hat out of the leftovers from Kirsi’s dress. My cake is wound kind of tight, and I didn’t want to put the yarn into storage like that. Keep your eyes peeled for the next Boticelli project! :)
