Lotta is the woollen equivalent of your favourite linen dress – loose-fitting, easy to wear and comfortable enough for every day. Vertical lines on both the fronts, back and hem are created with twisted stitches.

The dress is knitted top down with the upper bodice worked flat, then joined in the round just after the sleeve divide. The front pleat is created by casting on stitches at the front when joining in the round, which will later be folded into a pleat and tacked down before working the front placket.
