This pattern went together quickly; from the prototype, to the first draft, to the testers to the final layout. I had a wonderful group of 13 testers who quickly finished their Nicolettes and had many detailed notes for me to follow up on. To them I say a huge THANK YOU! This wouldn't have been possible without you :)
Nicolette is a special little top that starts out as a dress and ends as a tunic, providing a few years of wear. The sizes are in ranges: 0-1[1-4, 2-6, 4-8, 6-10, 8-12] years. If you want a dress, you chose the range where your little one fits at the smallest point. For example, for a 1yr old, you could chose size 0-4 for a tunic or 1-4 for a dress.
Nicolette is knit seamlessly from the top down, raglan shaing, an eyelet waistband for a ribbon tie, feather & fan lace for the cuffs and hem. Feminine and fun to knit!
