Back of the Dress
Close-up of “butterfly ties” in the back.
I used Vanna’s Choice Baby yarn in the orangy color (can’t remember the exact name of the color), and Simply Soft in Off-White. It’s not as orange as it appears in this picture. The color is more muted and looks more the color of a grapefruit.
I used a G hook for the first 10 Rows, then I started using an H. I used smaller hooks because I was using worsted weight yarn instead of baby weight. I think the neckline may be a bit too small. I would add a few stitches to it next time (the starting chain).
This pattern was just as much fun as the one I used for yesterday’s dress and very similar. I like those “butterfly ties” more than I thought I would. I did not like them before I saw how it looked tied. The instructions are in the pattern.
Thanks for your comments yesterday on the set. I really can’t take credit for the colors since I totally copied Sandy’s. And I know I should stop crocheting girlie stuff, but it’s so much more fun than boy stuff! If anybody has any cute baby boy patterns they would like to share, I’d definitely be interested. I just haven’t found any that look as fun as the girlie stuff.
