Use the shaped intarsia technique (see Knit.Wear Spring 2013) along with colorblocking to make a chic, a-line, knit dress—lightweight thanks to an airy sportweight yarn.

The back uses slipped stitches for mock seams to outline the color sections of the front.

The sleeves are knitted on and use short-rows to minimize the amount of fabric under the arm.

Finished Size: 34 (37, 43, 47, 50)” bust circumference. Tunic shown measures 34”, modeled with 2½” of positive ease.
