Create a complete beach look for a day at the beach. This is a six piece pattern which includes a beach dress, skirt, two piece swim suit, beach bag, and a hat.
The pattern stitch used is a 3 row repeat cat's eye lace stitch which is reversible. In fact you do not need to worry about wrong or right sides although the sides are included in the pattern. All the pieces are knit flat from the bottom upwards. The front and back of the dress are done separately so the dress has side seams. There is a buttoned closure at the shoulders for easy dressing.
Stitches used: knit, purl, YO, skp, kf&b, and knit 2 together

This a terrific pattern with lost of different options. All the items knit up quickly with easy to follow instructions. Many different ways to decorate the items such as beads and ribbons. Such a fun set.
I really enjoyed knitting this pattern. It is a cool and easy pattern to knit. It was also a quick project which is perfect for me because I am in and we are in mid-summer. We need this set now. It is easy for my nearly 4 year old great grand daughter to dress her doll in. I especially love the fit of the pieces. I love the fact that it is so versatile. You can make the basic set or enhance it with special embellishments, like ribbons, beads, flowers, multi colour, etc.
