My hands can do this --- Cro-Knit Child Party Dress


Girls are really nice to dress up like a doll.  That’s why, any mother would agree with me that this project is worth making it for their child to wear.  This crocheted-knitted baby party dress is beautifully designed and made with an easy-pattern combination of knitting and crocheting instructions. I'm naming it as "Cro-Knit Child Party Dress" to shorten only the words, "crocheted-knitted." It’s a unique, stylish project and a ‘yes, I can do it’ project for every mothers.  

I have an adult blouse project with combined crocheting and knitting instructions also, but there is more of knitting than crocheting instructions.   That's why I labeled it as a knit project.  I just used crocheting to connect the body parts and sashay ruffles. That's why I named it also, Knitted Blouse with Sashay Ruffles.
