Assalamualaikum and good afternoon 🙂
I really apologize for my long absent. Pity my little web, haven’t been updating for a quite a while though I am currently are in holiday. I’ve been busy working on my coming book, insya Allah. Still doing my best to finish… just a little bit more chapters. 4 patterns to go then tada! I am done 🙂 Wish me luck!
So, I have been doing this little dress for a little girl requested by a lovely customer. Really, thank you for willing to wait. I hope she will love it and will be happy with my handmade <3
I am sure some of you would love to knit this cute “arrow” dress.. obviously you can see the arrow on the sleeve part. I really dunno how did i came up with the idea. But of course, if you don’t like how it shaped, you can just change every YO to M1. Well then, here we go 🙂
