A summery dress that’s easy to knit, easy to wear. Dress is knit top-down. Bright stripes and eyelets keep the look fresh.
Finished Size 34¼ (37¾, 42¼, 46½, 50¼)” bust circumference. Dress shown measures 34¼”, modeled with slight ease.
This dress is worked from the top down.
The back is worked first from a provisional cast-on to the underarm, then the stitches for the front are picked up from the cast-on and the front is worked to the underarm. The front and back are then joined and the body is worked in the round.
