A long time ago I was browsing on the internet and came across this sock monkey gown and thought that it would be really cute to make a sock monkey dress for a baby girl. Recently a friend of mine happened to give birth to a beautiful baby girl and I knew she would love the sock monkey theme so I decided to make it! The hat and jumper are my own design; the booties are made from a free pattern I found on tlc.howstuffworks.com. Being that it is summer and a little to warm for knit wear, I tried to make the outfit the size that I thought she would be this fall and winter. Having two girls of my own, I know how fast babies can grow, so let's hope I guessed right on the size.
|To get the sock monkey grey marl look, I knitted Bernat Satin's Grey Mist and Vanna's Glamour Diamond together. The Vanna's Glamour gave it a subtle little sparkle, which I really liked!|
|I had to add some bows and Sparkle(Vanna's Glamour) because I wanted it to be really girly!|
|I love to make these simple Mary Jane style booties! They are so quick and easy to make and just adorable. And of course very girly!! I made these from Knit Picks CotLin, one of my favorite black yarns because the color is so rich.|
