Sui adds her fresh, fun signature to a classic stranded motif, adding a dash of electric aqua to neutral navy in the yoke, sleeves, and skirt of the dress. Knit in Koigu’s color-rich “Kersti Merino Crepe” in pieces and seamed, the dress hits several inches above the knee and sports mid-length sleeves. The ribbed crew neck and cuffs and stockinette fold-under hem make for a clean finish. Pair the dress with a set of matching knee socks kit in Koigu’s “KPM.” They’re worked from the ribbed cuff down and feature a stranded pattern on the calf.
