Deer Dress


This dress was designed as a gift for cousin Lucy and her mom, who had a dream of dressing Lucy in a hand knit reindeer dress for Christmas.

The dress is knit seamlessly from the top down.The first part of the neck edge is knit back and forth, to ensure that the dress can fit over the head. The rest of the dress is knit in the round on circular and double pointed needles.The two-colored elements of the design are charted and the rest of the pattern instructions are written.
