I love the growing trend of wearing dresses over pants. This combination is making its appearances in so many runway shows for Pre-Fall 2019. Easton is a perfect layering piece to wear over a long-sleeve tee and jeans or yoga pants. It is written for both tunic length and dress length. Brioche does take longer to knit than traditional knitting patterns, which is why this is in the summer issue, to give you extra time to have it ready by fall. When you’re ready to work a garment in brioche, you’ll hopefully find this rewarding since there are no sleeves or finishing around the neckline or armholes.
