This loose, baggy, large collared, highly contemporary garment is part of my PREMIER PATTERN range of designer machine knits for elegant larger women. Designed to be worn loose, this sweater dress is ideally suited to a curvier woman, although any stylish woman would look fabulous in this garment, no matter what her size is. It can be worn over leggings, trousers, or, if you prefer a more layered look, a skirt or with a dress underneath.
Knitted in 2 strands of industrial yarn, on a standard gauge knitting machine, with Yeoman Panama as the contrast. (Note; Any yarn can be substituted as long as the tension matches.)
A totally brand new pattern, this garment is sized S
SMALL - bust size 38 - 42 inch. Finished bust size 44 inch,
MEDIUM - bust size 44 - 48 inch. Finished bust size 50 inch, and
LARGE - bust size 50 - 54 inch. Finished bust size 56 inch.
This garment is designed for knitters with some experience, as it has extensive hand manipulated lace / fair isle combination stitch. The large, loose sailor type collar gives this garment a very high fashion look, and he manipulated stitches making the lacy parts, give a lovely wavy edging.

From the time I could pick up a crayon or pair of scissors I have created, and created, and created ..... I had my first solo art exhibition at age 14!
I went on to University and took a B.A. (hons) degree in Knitwear Design at Nottingham Trent University and am now a pattern designer.
