Named Chiasa, Japanese for one thousand mornings, is this A-line dress with a second layer at the top. The skirt part is worked in the round to the join of the second hem, then worked until the armholes before it is divided into two parts and worked flat to the end. The top layer is knitted with double seed stitch at the center, while the sleeves are worked in stockinette stitch. Chiasa ends in a crew neck and is knitted in the lustrous pelt wool yarn Tinde from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
