Neckline Ruffle:

With smaller needle (#2, #3, or #5), slide this needle through the SECOND ROW of stitches (loops) at the neckline - picking up 68 stitches. (The original number of stitches you cast on to begin this dress).
NOTE: Just use the needle - no yarn. You are picking up stitches around the neck edge and putting them onto a smaller needle. Don’t worry if you don’t pick up all 68 stitches on the smaller needle. You will pick up any missed stitches on the next row.

With #6 needle, attach yarn and knit the stitches from the smaller needle, picking up any missed stitches as you knit - until you have 68 stitches on the #6 needle.

Beautiful as always! I gave my daughter the hint for that granddaughter this morning! She told me to hope that my niece, who is expecting her first, has the girl!

Just a reminder:

When using Bernat's Baby Jacquard in any of their "flowers" yarns - remember, it is self-striping and your version will probably not look at all like the one in the pattern.

It's kind of fun when working with self-striping yarn to see just how it will turn out - always a mystery! But lots of fun!
