The Valley Yarns Meadowlark Kit includes the PDF pattern download and the Conway yarn in Buttercup needed to knit this adorable set.Shop Knitting Tools and Accessories for all your project needs.
Ruffles adorn both the yoke of the dress and the crown of the hat in Meadowlark, and they send the cute factor off the charts! Both items have a simple stockinette base, knit in the round from the bottom up. The hat is knit seamlessly, and the dress body is knit in one piece with the sleeves seamed in during finishing. The tiny ruffles are knit from stitches picked up from the base garments, adding whimsy and interest both as you knit and once your favorite little one is wearing them. Valley Yarns Conway lends a soft and smooth feel to these projects with its blend of Pima cotton and acrylic, making it perfect for garments for babies and children.
