Red Cable Sarta dress knitting pattern for Disney Animators Collection dolls.
This really beautiful and even feminine looking (can we say that about a doll?) dress is designed as a midi dress that reaches the mid calf, has a rather wide skirt that gradually narrows to a slim bodice with demure neckline. Cables are a real standout in the pattern, but seed stitch is the reals "king maker" here - all shaping is hidden inside these stitches.
This is a striking girly dress, with long sleeves, slim A-line shape and very subtle trim - a strip of a narrow lace that adorns the neckline and the bottom of the skirt.
The pattern might seem complicated, but it is written out in stitch by stitch format, easy to follow and a pleasure to knit.
The sample was knit using Viking Baby Ull yarn, 100% merino wool, 50 gr/1.75oz, 175m/195 yds.
You can use any yarn that has the approximately same yardage per same weight, or, if using more general terms - a 4 ply, fingering, baby weight yarn will work fine.
The working gauge is 6.5-7 sts =1"(2.5cm) over seed stitch pattern with 2.00mm (US#1) needles or size to obtain gauge
