The stitch is a simple one, Im not even sure exactly what its called but it creates a beautiful effect when striped.
I named this one the Archie gown. Archie is short for Archibald, and that means Brave. Quite fitting <3
Like the Davida, it doesn't have an actual size, it depends entirely on your yarn and hook size. General rule of thumb 22-24 weeks is made using a 3mm hook and some baby 4ply fingering yarn, DK 8ly yarn and a 4mm hook and will fit around 26-28 weeks.
Row 1: Chain 32, DC in 4th chain from hook, Dc in next 2 dc, (1dc, ch, 1dc) in next chain, *dc in next 6 ch, (dc, ch, dc) in next chain. Repeat from * two MORE times. Dc in last 4 chs; ch 2 and turn.
2-4: dc in each dc, (dc, ch1, dc) in each ch1 space from the previous round, ch2, turn
5: Sleeve Row: dc in each st to the first ch1 space, skip all stitches and dc in the next ch1 space. One sleeve made. Repeat to create the second sleeve, dc to the end, ch2, turn.
6: ch3, *dc in the next 3 stitches, 2dc in the next stitch* Repeat across, turn
7 and all remaining rows until desired length: ch1, *sk 1, (sc, dc) in the next stitch together* Repeat across, turn
This creates a sloped small cluster type stitch throughout the gown.
