You would be forgiven for thinking that Christmas has come early as we have another stunning pattern to give to you for FREE! We know that the weather here in the UK has been so splendidly sunny that even the most hardcore knitters amongst us have been forced to put down our needles, but there is nothing quite like being prepared for the inevitable cool down. So, if you are looking for a project to while away the evenings, and know a gorgeous little girl who would love this pretty dress that's perfect for the transition from summer into the cooler days ahead, then look no further than our lovely FREE Emilia Dress pattern.

The Emilia Dress is a super stylish short-sleeved pattern with beautiful Scandinavian influenced fairisle detailing around the waist, and chic contrasting sleeves and rib. The colour combinations are pretty whilst still being fun and with the smallest size taking just 4 balls of yarn in the main colour (petal) and 1 ball each of storm, grass, fuchsia and snow, it's right on trend for a move from summer to autumn. 

As always, we show the Emilia in an alternative colourway - using forget-me-not as the main colour with the contrasting rib in midnight, and fuchsia, daisy and snow making up the other shades. If you're feeling adventurous and want to create a colourway of your own, but need a little help, why not try out the colour tool available on every pattern page? This delightful dress pattern ranges from age 2-3 years in the smallest size up to age 6-7 years and is simply constructed from a front, back and 2 sleeves so earning a beginner/improving rating.

The Emilia Dress pattern is available for download from our website now. We'd love to see your gorgeous girls in their own Emilia's so do please post your pics on our Ravelry group page or send them to - we are always delighted to see your finished garments!
