A pretty fairisle sweater dress to keep you feeling cosy and looking fabulous!The dress is knitted in the round from the top down with a yoked construction. We use “jogless stripe” techniques to avoid a jump in the colourwork pattern as we knit in the round. Instructions are given for 10 sizes. We recommend knitting one size smaller than usual since this dress looks great with a bit of negative ease. We would also highly
recommend that knitters check their own measurements against the garment measurements. We are well aware that not all bodies are created the same and have given extensive instructions on how to customize the pattern for a personalized, perfect fit at the end of the pattern.
