Molly Ringwald Dress
From the description: Lace projects are considered more advanced. Complex-looking stitchery belies a logical progression. Once the stitch pattern is mastered, manipulating it is half the fun.
Gauges: Note - these are steamed and “hung” gauges:
- 17 sts and 14 rows = 4” / 10cm in seed st pattern
- small fan lace pattern = 2.25” / 5.5cm, 12 shell rows or three 4-row reps = 5.5” / 14cm
- medium fan lace pattern = 3.5” / 9cm, 12 shell rows or three 4-row reps = 6” / 15cm
- large fan lace pattern = 4.75” / 12cm, 12 shell rows or three 4-row reps = 6.5” / 16.5cm
Additional notes from the book-
Bodice is worked in the round from the bottom up to the armholes, beginning and ending at center back. Armholes are worked back and forth. Skirt is worked from the bottom of the bodice downards. This is a seamless garment and may be tried on in progress.
