I’m often looking for ways to use up my sock yarn mini-skeins or other leftover scraps of yarn, so I decided to write a pattern for this child-sized dress/tunic. I knit the first one while watching my granddaughter, Charlie so of course I decided to name it “Charlie’s Dress.” She loves wearing hers!
