Stem Leaf Lacey Dress Pattern

from Natalie Smart Designs

Stem Leaf Lacey Dress Pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Lace knitting
  • Circular knitting

Pattern Description:

Here is a beautiful lace dress I designed with my own stem leaf pattern which looks great in the Millamia Yarn.

This dress has been designed with negative ease (except for the last size) and waist shaping so it will be very fitted when worn. If you prefer a looser fit I would suggest knitting a size larger.

The main body is worked in the round on circular needles until the armhole shaping where it is divided for the front and back.

The sleeves are also worked in the round using the 'Magic Loop' method until the armhole shaping. Tutorials on how to knit using the Magic Loop technique can be found on YouTube.

The lace pattern is written and charted.

Please note that this pattern has been checked by a professional technical editor prior to publication.
