Sorrel knitting pattern is a classic baby dress which is knit in one piece from the bottom up in three sizes. The simple welted knit and purl detail at the hem and circular yoke add just the right detail without being fussy. The small gauge makes this dress comfortable and practical for wearing alone in warm weather and for under other a sweater in cooler weather. The dress will easily grow with baby and can be worn later as a shirt. The seamless construction adds comfort as well as being a time saver for the busy knitter. This fairly easy project is great for advanced beginners and beyond.
