Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl, standard decreases and increases

Pattern Description:

Why not something special for you? A beautiful dress knitted in two classy colours. For the dress shown on photos I used two different cotton yarns: The black yarn is rather matt finished and the brown yarn has a light brilliance. Both together result in a pleasant effect of elegance.

Also an eyecatcher: The small lace border at the lower seam.
