Anker’s Dress is worked top-down seamlessly on circular needles. The yoke consists of segments of rib st with increases followed by classic raglan increases in stockinette st. The back of the neck has an opening with a small button. The dress has a pretty A-shape which provides a timeless and classic look. You can vary the length of the dress easily so it fits the intended wearer.
