Lollipops and Raindrops Dress is part of the Sun and Sand collection that takes you on a journey to childhood places, carefree days, fragrant summers, best friends, sweet treats, and never ending wonders. The dress is completely seamless and is worked from the top down. My favorite part about this design is that it allows you to stash bust your leftover yarns, it is also great for showcasing your prized variegated skeins you have been hoarding for a long time. The dress is equally amazing in gradient or self-striping yarns. I have used an amazing technique developed by Susie Myers, "contiguous set-in sleeves", that allows shoulder shaping and body construction without the use of a single short row. Note on yarn: the pattern is equally suitable for wool and cotton yarns or their blends.

'Follow Me' to be notified of new patterns and project updates! My name is Elena Nodel, and I am a mom to a very industrious, busy, ever curious and adventurous little girl. She is my ever present inspiration for all my creative ideas. As she grows, she becomes more and more involved in my creative work, and actually does have a say in a final look of any given project. I have a Girly Girl, thus most of my designs are very feminine. However, lately I have started working on more unisex projects. I was born and raised in Russia, a place where knitting is a part of the lifestyle. I now live in British Columbia, Canada, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I am a trained microbiologist/immunologist , and have spent years doing scientific research. I am married to a like scientist, and his name is Peter. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive husband, and Maya is very lucky to have a father who constantly encourages her natural curiosity, and teaches her about the world around her - she has him wrapped very tightly around her little finger! I love working with natural fibers such as cotton or wool, and always try to use them.One thing I don't like doing is seaming, therefore I knit in the round as much as possible. It is great for me and comfortable for kids. And as a result, I usually design my garments to be worked in the round from the top down. Dare to follow?
