Claire asked me for this pattern which is based on the Ray of Hope Angel Gown. Unfortunately I sent her the wrong instructions first time round and she ended up with a rather odd shaped garment. So here is the correct pattern named after her (with apologies to Thomas Hardy).

Just wanted to say a big thank you MAYFLOWER I think this is the smallest thing I have ever knitted....easy to follow pattern too, so will go find some buttons to finish it off and then I think I will start another.

I just use the needles recommended for the yarn I am using - 4mm for DK or 3.5 for 4 ply. However I find that using a size larger needle results in a lighter garment.

Because all of my patterns use "number of rows" rather than measurements in cm or inches you can get away with anything really - you will always get a garment that is in the correct proportion :D

I used 11 old size, but it wasn't double knitting wool - probably 4 or 3 ply nicked from the knitting machine yarn mountain.

I had been meaning to try one of these for ages, and this post inspired me. I managed to knit one in just a couple of hours last night, which is amazing for me, as I am not a fast knitter by any means.

I did it with some of the James Brett self-striping acrylic, it says it is DK but it is so fine I always knit it as 4ply, and I did it on 3mm needles. It is hard to believe that there are wee living souls that tiny! I just need to put some buttons on it, and it will go into my box which is very slowly filling up!

oh dear ,trust me to have trouble with first few rows !
when you do the buttonhole row, k2 yfwd k to end ,are you not making an extra stitch which means 28 st on needle, then if you increase 8 st on increase row ,end up with 36 st instead of 35,
this is what happened to me, :oops: ,only 1 stitch but enough to confuse me! :o
