Alhamdulillah.. I finished this dress within 1 week + (and yes, just now). Oh oh.. I really love how it turns out at the end, though, I kept being hesitated to choose either I should come up with lace or just simple basic knit. I used my daughter’s dress to get the measurement I need for 1 year old size. The ruffle was a trial and error and unexpectedly, it comes out like how I really wish to knit
As I said, I need to make a simple easy raglan cardigan as a Kit (but sorry.. I can not help myself but to knit a dress ) But insya Allah, it will be easy and I will try my best to make it easier for beginner to read and follow.
I’m going to make another one using different yarn (I’m planning to use Nako Luks Minnos) and re-write the pattern again.
Wish me luck again, and hope I can release the pattern by the end of September.
For the passed 3 days, I’ve been working with my new pattern. I really need to have at least few knitted dress in my pattern collections therefore the first thing I do is measuring one of my daughter’s dress as a sample before I begin.
I used Ice Magic Baby. Knitting with trial and error. Getting the right gauge, pointing down all the important calculations as I knit. So far, it goes well I can’t promise to show the result of my dress today, but hopefully I can complete it within next week.
The pattern will be available for purchase. oh yes, insya Allah i will also include photos tutorial for easy reference.
so, wish me luck and my hope is to encourage more newbies knitter to advance their knitting skill with this new pattern and tutorial.
P/S: I also need one person who can help me by being my pattern tester. Please inbox us for further details. Pattern tester must be committed with giving us full feedback, honest comment and suggestions. The advantage of being my pattern tester is you will:
1. Recieve the pattern for free

About 2 weeks ago, I received a request from a new customer for a baby set. She needs it by 7th September, which means, I only have about 1 week to complete the mission. Oh for sure, jobs won’t prevent me to continue enjoying my hobby. So, I accept with full of confidence that I can finish it before 7th.
She gave me a sample, it looks quite simple. Oh well, my fingers never listen to its owner! Again, heavy modification is applied >_<
The set includes a baby dress, a set of booties and mittens and a headband. So, after payment is received, I quickly grab my needles and start knitting (oh by the way, i was making a small experiment to my coming new pattern and have to put it aside)
Finally, I finished making the set exactly on the date I promised her, where I will post her items on 4th September. Alhamdulillah. I am very happy cause i really love making it! I hope she and her baby girl will love it too 🙂
So now… I need to continue working with my next new pattern design. Work is work. Hobby is hobby 😉 Till next time!
Assalamualaikum. May Allah swt bless us all.
