Button Candy Dress
I’ve always had a thing for vintage candies. Growing up, candy buttons were one of my favorites. I loved peeling the brightly colored sugar dots from their paper strip and popping them, one at a time, into my mouth. The pops of color that dot the yoke of this dress are as sweet as the candy buttons I loved as a child.
The dotted yoke is worked as a stranded pattern that’s perfect for showing off vibrant shades yarn.
Button Candy is constructed from the top down, and with no seaming required aside from the optional patch pocket, it’s nearly a finish-free knit. A wider neckline and mid-thigh length will keep the candy dot dress in your little girl’s wardrobe for several seasons – first as a short dress and then as a tunic.
The sample was knit in Neighborhood Fiber Co. yarns. A substitute yarn is shown below.
