What do you get when you combine a cozy knit cowl, and your favorite sweater dress? This fabulous wooly wonder that is sure to impress! This classic cowl neck dress is a wardrobe staple, and while wearing this dress you will look nothing but graceful. While the drape of the cowl says elegance and class, the cut out in the back offers some sass! This incredibly versatile cowl can be folded to cover your arms and back in the cold, or to keep your ears warm by being worn as a hood! The flattering open back offers a sweet surprise that is sure to turn heads, while the dazzling diamond knit and purl patterns will get you knitting street cred. Knit with 100% Baby Alpaca that is incredibly soft, it’s so cozy and warm you will never want to take it off! Cowl me maybe? Cowl me yes!

This Dress design is worked seamlessly in the round from the the bottom up. Stitches are then picked up along the neckline and cast on along the back to work the cowl seamlessly in the round. The skirt and cowl are knit in an Embossed Diamond pattern, while the bodice is knit in a Seed Diamond pattern. If you would like to substitute any or all of these stitch patterns to be knit in Stockinette Stitch, that would be easy to do!

This Dress was originally designed for “The Fiber Factor” final challenge - to see all of the ways you can wear the cowl, check out my project page for the original dress here!
