What an adorable project. I think it is just so sweet and after reading the directions I can see how easy it's going to be to make. It can also help use up extra yarn I have lying around. So it's easy, cute and inexpensive.mwhat more do you want in a project?

The DCFP stitch that is used in this baby tunic is an easy stitch to make once you have mastered it. It is best to start slowly and methodically until you are comfort working this and getting your stitches even. This is a very cute tunic. Love the colors used. Instructions are great and easy to follow.

What does Dcfp.Dcbp mean in the pattern for Rainbows and lollipops tunic?
