I’m making this dress for my friend’s baby. It’s for her first birthday. I’m using Plymouth Yarn Fantasy Naturale 100% mercerized cotton. Needless to say my tension has never looked worse. Any tips for getting more even tension with cotton yarn? I’ve tried knitting looser, purling tighter, etc. I do have Denise needles. Should I use a different size needle on one side?
Also, the decrease down to the waistband left too many holes for my taste. I will sew a thin ribbon border on the top and bottom of the orange waistband to help hide that. I’m thinking of frogging this one and starting over. At least this is the back of the dress. I have not started on the front yet. Let me know your thoughts please! Here’s a couple of pics.
