Notes

Deutsch im Stricktagebuch vom 21. Juni 2013
Little girls mostly like dresses so does my niece.
I combined two things: a surprising birthday gift and knitting with yarn I wanted to use since I had it.
Unfortunately several swatches didn’t convince me for the intended projects so I gave it a try for this dress and it was matching beautyfully with the bambus yarn.

The pattern was easy to follow but for using it on my ways in public transports much too long. I know that Nadita served many people who prefer written patterns but I made an excel sheet with some notes which I carried with me.
After two “feathers” I knew the pattern by heart.
I worked the background in stockinette and the feathers in garter to give the colored sections a relief-like look.
I extended the stole to a dress sewing the provisional cast on and the last row with kitchener stitch. Then I worked the upper part in k1p1 and knitted short raglan sleeves.

The pattern is a really nice project you can realize with all kinds of yarn. It’s also very inspiring for other knitware in endless variations.
One thing not to cause irritations: this is neither swing-knitting nor Strickrausch-knitting but a guided short-row-knitting with a very vivid expression.

My niece was swirling around in her dress until she got dizzy.
