  • The Snowdrop Dress is easy to wear, versatile and comfortable sleeveless dress (or tunic) for your girl to wear all year round! Make it fun to knit and fun to wear by choosing a solid or semi-solid coloured yarn as the main colour, and a contrast colour for the accents.

  • The garment is worked seamlessly in the round starting at waistline; a skirt is worked down to the hem, and the bodice is worked up from the cast on live stitches.


The main difference between this design and Summer Snowdrop is in the pattern’s gauge (now you can knit it in dk weight yarn). This design incorporates 1-2 inches of positive ease. Also, the skirt’s width and length are altered to suit the dk weight yarn and avoid having too much weight in the lower part of the dress.

The pattern instruction includes both a dress and a tunic versions of this design. Please note, the previously published “Snowdrop Tunic” pattern in now merged with this pattern and no longer available as a separate pattern. All the updates were sent to the previous buyers. Thank you for your cooperation.
