Camellia Baby Dress

Baby dress free knitting pattern

Carolus Linnaeus named a flower with the name Camellia after Georg Joseph Kamel, a pharmacist who has dedicated himself for 20 years finding new remedies sourced from local native plants. Likewise, I named this baby dress pattern with Camellia, because it provides a remedy for my self-healing. When I knitted this baby dress, I felt less worried about the current pandemic condition. It also happens that the yarn color I use is like the color of camellia.

This pattern combines 2 techniques at once (work flat and work in round) with crocheted edges. It is done in a top-down direction. Give it a try! Please share the pattern with friends and family, but please do not resell it and do not use the pattern to sell the baby dress. Let me know your result by mentioning me on Ravelry (Restidiah) or Instagram @restidia.
