I love the idea of marking an important year with a temperature blanket, but living in Hawaii means wonderful, warm weather year round that makes it hard to find use for a blanket. So instead I wrote a pattern for a temperature dress, one that is equally good for lounging around on the beach, shopping, and going out with friends/my husband. The year I chose is my birth year, and the colors are all yarn from my stash I’ve been wanting to get rid of. I think this makes a good sentimental stash buster.

This is a very basic, mostly unshaped sheath dress with instructions for optional shaping if you prefer a more fitted dress.

Sizes available are women’s S, M, L, XL, XXL
The gauge is 15 HDC and 11 rows
Worsted weight yarn and a 5 mm crochet hook, or hook needed to obtain gauge, is required.
