This darling little dress is made with self-striping Ty-Dy 100% cotton yarn in Watermelon, giving it its suitable name. Designed by Hèléne Rush the dress is knitted from the bottom up and in the round. The front and back are divided and knitted separately to complete the shoulder straps. The top is in seed stitch, a combination of knit and purl stitches, and the skirt is a pattern of Eyelet stitches giving it a lacey look. Of course this lovely dress can be made with any of the Ty-Dy colors, of which all will make a fun design.
