Beanie Baby Dress Knitting Pattern

Meg Littlefield

This is a dress that was intended for Valentino, but has been worn by just about every beanie in my dear daughter's collection. I used some sport (or maybe DK) weight chenille that I picked up at a yard sale. I don't know the manufacturer as the labels had been removed before I bought it. It takes less than one 50g ball, and it's knit all in one piece with a little crochet.

Gauge
20 sts and 26 rows to 4" (I used US size 5 needles) in stockinette st.

Body

Cast on 24 sts (Tip: You are going to be picking up these sts later on, so I suggest using either a single cast on or a chain cast on with a different color that you can take out later).
Work 10 rows (2") St st.
Place marker on each edge to mark armholes.
Work 10 more rows (2") St st.

Neck

Opening: K5, bind off 14, k to end of row.
Next Row: K5, cast on 14, k remaining sts.
Work the rest of the body by working 10 rows (2") St st, place markers, and work 10 more rows (2") st st.
Leave sts on needle for ruffle.

Ruffle

Increase for every st -- you should now have 48 sts.
Work 1½" of K2 P2 ribbing.
Bind off all sts.
Pick up 24 sts from the cast on row and repeat the ruffle.

Finishing

Fold piece in half and sew sides from markers to bottom edge.
With a size E (or close approximate) crochet hook, work a row of single crochet/chain 3 picot around the armholes and neck opening.
