Solvej is an everyday dress in random multicolor stripes with turned picot hems for a neat finish.

The dress is knit from the top down with a round yoke. After knitting the body, the only finishing is to add sleeve hems.

Kjolen strikkes oppefra og ned, og har et rundt bærestykke. Når kroppen og skørtet er strikket, gøres kjolen færdig ved at strikke ærmekanter på.

Solvej kan strikkes af et af Midgaards Haves plantefarvede strikkekits, eller man kan strikke af blandede rester.
