This is my biggest stranded knitting project.

I modified the chart from the Cthulu Dice Bag from AntiCraft to get the individual Cthulus (one on the front, and one on the back).  The cthulus are two stitches taller than the hearts, and the heart chart and distance between the hearts and the cthulus I made up.  (Basic charts are crazy easy to make).

You can just see the cthulu in the middle back...


Sorry my baby's so bald  Cheesy

Apparently you shouldn't read Lovecraft stories to an infant, unless you want them to make faces like this...



Original pattern here: http://blog.rosahoban.co.uk/2009/07/happy-summer-vest.html

Cthulu dice bag with chart here: http://www.arcanavitae.com/?p=27

It's made out of cotton, organic because she likes to stuff things in her mouth while I'm making them.
Also, it's HUGE because I made a 1 year old size, and made it a little longer than the pattern called for.  It's actually a shirt, but right now it works as a dress.

Such a cute dress--great job!
Oh, and that little baby of yours is freakin' adorable! My daughter was a baldie too forEVER! Then she sprouted a little bit on top, and then it turned into a mullet, and now she has a head of curls. I miss my little bald girl Smiley

The dress/top is super easy, and easy to customize.
