This infinity top is the perfect go-to knit pattern to achieve many looks, all in one easy to read pattern. This pattern features the option of doing an adorable heart shape cutout in the back, making this dress so adorable. Don’t want the heart cutout? Choose to do the simple back option. Choose from 3 bodice lengths: Curved (for a slight high low effect), straight and Drop waist. You can choose from gathered skirt or circle skirt in tunic and dress lengths. The skirt can be made with woven or knit fabric. Choose from 6 sleeve options! Tank, flutter, short, elbow, 3/4 or long sleeves. You can also choose to add ruffle sleeves in either a gathered ruffle or a circle flounce. The option to add ruffles down the center of the bodice add a cute feminine touch. The sleeves and bodice ruffles can be made in knit or woven as well. And, to top it off, you can add side seam pockets to the dress length skirts so littles can store all their little treasures they collect. This bodice is fully lined so there are no binding to fiddle with. This pattern is rated advanced beginner for the heart back but is a beginner pattern if you do the simple back.
New to knit? Don’t worry!! The pattern has helpful tips and tricks to make sewing with knits a breeze!

The best part about knits is that they don’t fray, so it is not necessary to hem them, although that is an option explained in the patterns. You’ll find that sewing knits is much faster than sewing wovens! These patterns will help you jump in and discover a love for knits (if you haven’t already)!
