Knit a Rainbow

Today I shall mostly be working on this gorgeous design for little Alice courtesy of the fabulous MIllamia. This rainbow dress is an adaptation of the original colourways laid out in the Carlota pattern which features on the front cover of the amazing Bright Young Things Collection and can also be purchased as a single pattern from Woolaballoo.

I have chosen my own vibrant colour scheme as I was desperate to try out some of the new shades from Millamia including the fabulous Lime and Cobalt limited edition yarn shades.
