I am from one of the Baltic countries and have always loved their national costumes. That dirndl comes from that love.

Look for yarn of aprox. 130 yds/1 oz, or 220-240 yds/50 gr.
The pattern has row by row written instructions. For those who prefer to work from charts, complete charts of all pieces are included.
If you do not want to print all pages here is the breakdown:
pp.1-10 - written pattern
pp.11-13 - photos
pp.14-18 - knitting charts
I am, probably, a crafter by nature. I love to work with my hands. And I love all things yarns, thread, fabric. Loved them from as early as I can remember myself. Sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery were always my favorite.
Touch of the fiber, color, shape, intricate pattern - they all inspire me. A ball of yarn, needles or a hook - when they are in my hands, it makes me happy.
