This design was inspired by my love of geometry and as a tribute to so many of the beautiful crochet works of the 60s and 70s.

The pattern includes instructions both for a sweater and a dress. Worked from the top down, both items are worked the same to the waist so you can always decide which one to make as you go!

Materials
The pattern is worked using DK yarn and a 4mm hook. The item pictured uses Rico Cotton soft DK in 50g balls, but most DK yarns which meet gauge can be used.
Depending on you chosen size, you will need 8-13 balls (400 - 650g / 890 - 1580m) for the sweater and 11 - 19 balls (550 - 950g / 1350 - 2300m) for the dress.

Skill Level
This pattern would suit intermediate crocheters, or confident beginners. Simple stitches and a 4 row pattern repeat is are used throughout. Decreasing and increasing is required for the sleeves and dress respectively.
Foundation chains are used to start the garment (instructions and modifications are given).

Sizing
Both pattern are written for sizes XS-3X. Approximate finished measurements, including a schematic, and gauge information are given within the pattern. It is simple to adjust the length of the sleeves, sweater or dress.

The pattern is written using US crochet terms.
