I HAD to post about this pattern.  A good friend called for some people to test knit a top she designed.  It’s a simple top-down raglan knit.  Hopefully, any bugs or size issues with the patterns will be sorted quickly so that she can get crackin’ on larger sizes. 😉

It’s called Kaia’s Babydoll and is knit in 8 ply.  I used Bendigo Woolen Mills 8 ply cotton in Marine (no longer available) for the bodice and Cleckheaten Natural Cotton 8 ply in cream for the body.  I added in some colourwork so the dress would have a gradual change from blue to cream.  I am missing a few transition rows, but that’s where knitting more than one will come in handy.

Anyway, keep an eye out on Ravelry for her pattern, where she goes by MessyMama.
