    Hi: What is the LENGTH of this dress from shoulder down to hem?

  4. Mick

    Okay. Do you recall what HOOK SIZE you used and the WEIGHT of the yarn? Knowing such may give me some idea as to your gauge . . . and then I could convert the numbers/gauge for my hook and yarn choices. :0)

    • It is listed under materials, worsted weight yarn and I hook

        Sorry about that . . . I thought “I” meant “one” which had me confused. (In Canada we use metric hook sizes.) Also, not knowing the brand name, I wasn’t sure if the yarn may have been a “baby” worsted weight of some kind. Thanks for the clarifications.

    I can not get it to print. Sure would love to have that pattern, it would look great on my granddaughter.

    • I am not sure why it is not printing for you, it prints perfectly from my computer

      Go to the dropdown file menu at the top of your browser to see if there is an option to SAVE AS PDF or EXPORT AS PDF. Click on it. This will save a PDF of the whole page – pattern and comments – to your chosen destination folder (i.e. downloads, desktop, etc.).

      Then try to print the pattern from “the (new) PDF file you downloaded” (i.e. rather than from the website itself or by using a copy/paste method).

    I have posted a hat pattern that matches nicely with my this dress.

    Maya if you give me your email I can send the hat pattern. I will send to whomever leaves me their email
