Pattern Details

A gorgeous dress with an intricate lace yoke. Worked in the round from the bottom up, with instructions to knit cap sleeved, 3/4 sleeved and long sleeved options - all included in this one pattern making it versatile and great value for money. Knit yourself a cute short sleeved version in cotton for the summer and a long sleeved version in wool for the winter. The pattern for La Primavera Top is also available here on Craftsy. The pattern also includes the instructions to knit the dress with two different hem finishing styles - a pretty folded picot or a rolled hem. The pictured dress shows the folded picot hems and cap sleeves, the pink top shows the rolled hems. You can use any fingering weight or 4 ply yarn for this top. The pictured dress was made from a 100% cotton yarn - Barka Menta 170m/50g. The 32" size dress is pictured on a model with a 34" bust (3.5" negative ease) this is because it was a cotton yarn with a lot of stretch. The pink jumper was knitted with a merino wool yarn also in the 34" size giving 1.5" of negative ease. The lace yoke pattern is in charted from only - a clear and easy to read chart.
