I want to start a dress for my GGD, but having a difficult time finding a pattern. had my heart set on a cute summer dress, but could not find yarn to suit it. now I have found another sundress, but don't know how to do a frilled cast on. looked on You Tube but found nothing. where else should I look? I am excited to get started. help please!

Darlene-If you end up deciding to try a different pattern, look at Jil Eatons Minnowknits patterns. In the book Minnowknits Too, there is a little cotton knit jumper called Brittany Jumper that is just the cutest. It's a VERY easy to knit cotton jumper with a lace border. I've made several of these and it's easy and fast. I think this can also be purchased as an individual pattern instead of buying the whole book (I have all her books and many of her individual patterns-I knit her patterns alot). She also has other really cute patterns for little dresses and jumper/overalls. Her patterns are all easy with minimal finishing (my kind of designer!). Just go to minnowknits.com to see her designs or check with your LYS to see if they could order for you. Good luck!
