Dandelion Tunic Dress
This simple tunic pattern was designed with speed and ease in mind. Somehow, even amid the usual chaos of life with a toddler, it practically flew off my hook. That’s why I named it the Dandelion Tunic- it seemed as if it popped up almost overnight! Considering how incredibly fast little ones grow at this age, that’s very important. I purposefully simplified the ribbing by using only front post stitches. I added a row of pretty little eyelets as well, to give the dress a hint of lightness. The improvised eyelets up top do double duty- they add a bit of breezy elegance, and help shape the yoke without using slower, bulkier decrease stitches. This dress will use just half a skein of Caron One Pound Yarn in the 4T size.

This dress is so cute! I dont have any daughters but Ive saved it just in case I need a gift for a birthday. I think I will tweak it just a bit whenever I make one and use a much lighter weight yarn. Worsted weight on little ones just look too bulky. Your little daughter makes such a cute model for you. Thank you for this free pattern.

What a very cute dress. After reading the directions, I can truly say that it is a very easy pattern. The instructions are very well written and yes, even a beginner can follow this and make a lovely dress. I know a little lady who will look just adorable in this. Thank you!
