This versatile sparkling dress is darling on any little girl, and as she gets bigger, the straps can be adjusted so she can wear it as a top (as shown)!

20 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Feather and Fan pattern (multiple of 12 sts)
Row 1 (RS):
Row 2: Purl.
Row 3: *(K2tog) twice, (yarn over, k1) 4 times, (k2tog) twice; rep from * across.
Row 4: Knit.
Rep Rows 1–4 for Feather and Fan pattern.


Cast on 84 (96,108) sts.
Beg with Row 1, work in Feather and Fan pattern until piece measures about 8 (9, 10) in. [20.5, (23, 25.5) cm] from beg, end with a WS row.
Shape Yoke
Next Row: (K1, k2tog) 6 (8, 5) times, (k2tog) across to last 18 (24, 15) sts, (k2tog, k1) 6 (8, 5) times – 48 (56, 59) sts
Work in Garter st until yoke measures 1 1/2 (1 3/4, 2) in. [4 (4.5, 5) cm], end with a WS row.
Shape Armhole
Bind off 6 (7, 7) sts at beg of next 2 rows – 36 (42, 45) sts.
Decrease 1 st at beg of every row 4 (6, 6) times – 32 (36, 39) sts.
Continue even in Garter st (k every row) until yoke measures 3 (3 1/2, 4) in. [7.5 (9, 10) cm], end with a WS row.
Shoulder Ties
Next Row: K8, slip these 8 sts to stitch holder, bind off center 16 (20, 23) sts, k to end.
Work in Garter st on remaining 8 sts until tie measures about 4 1/2 in. (11.5 cm). Bind off.
Slip 8 sts from holder back to needle and re-join yarn. Work as for first shoulder tie. Bind off.

Work same as Back.

Child's Glamour Dress Reviewed by Patricia Bowden on 2009-09-17 *****
just had to send you this photo of my grand daughter in one of your free patterns for a dress. The knitting and making up of the garment was extremely easy and the result was fantastic.
I knitted a longer version of it so that she could wear it as a full length sun-dress.
