The perfect sweater dress for any girl!
I designed this dress for my daughter who always wants to wear dresses, no matter the weather. With practical sleeves, either full length or three-quarters, and comfortably fitted, your daughter can wear this dress anywhere.
This dress is also a great blank canvas for that colourwork or Watermellish chart you have been wanting to try. Use that lovely semi solid and matching trim you have stashed, or knit it in a solid colour, or how about a gradient! This dress looks gorgeous no matter what you choose.
Options are included for different sleeve and hem treatments - picot hems, icord edging and ribbed sleeves.
Knit with DK weight yarn, or a light worsted, ensure that you have gauge and this dress will be a great fit!
The dress allows for approximately 1inch of ease.

I am a knitter, and have been knitting obsessively for the past 4 years, although I learnt to knit as a small child. Pattern design is my new passion, I love the freedom to design patterns that I can't otherwise find!
