Red and Cream for a little lady.

Sweet Little Granny Tunic Dress 




 I fell in love with this little dress as soon as I saw it on Ana's blog Days of Yarning




It's so sweet don't you think? We all love things granny so a granny dress is a perfect project in my eyes.  I took this to work to do because I knew we were going to be quiet that day.  I started it at 10 30 am and worked on it on and off between busy periods making sure that my boss wasn't watching of course ( don't tell ! ) and I finished it off at home at around 6 pm.  My daughter popped in after work and fell in love with it as soon as her eye's rested on it, so you know where it's going don't you?..... it's another one for the granny drawer. :)

You can find the pattern here

Mine is a larger version and I adapted it a little.
I think it would fit a 3 to 4 year old.
It took 136 grams of Dk yarn and I used a 5.00 mm hook.


Thank you Ana for the inspiration!

  10. Okay, I must be going crazy!! I know you well and have been here many times! What is wrong with me?? When I scrolled up and saw your picture, I knew I had made a mistake. Oops. What can I say? I'm OLD and feeble-minded. LOL. I'm a little disappointed because I thought I had found a new crochet friend. Hahaha. Yikes.

  11. A granny drawer is a good idea. I have kept a couple of blankets that I really love. My daughter is still only 19, so I have a long wait....I hope!

  18. Hello Linda
    Many thanks for visiting my blog and for your always kind comments.

    I love the little dress and I am delighted you have choosen red. I think red sits fine on a toddler it doesn't aways have to be pink,yellow or white. The pattern does look very easy and I'd like to try it out but I wonder if I do it in cotton if I can get a smaller size out of it as it would be for a baby. Will have to experiment.

    keep well

    Amanda :-)
