Description

Lately I’ve been very excited about knitting, not hand knitting but machine knitting. I’m a bit impatient character and an idea about making a knit dress knitting by hand feels quite frightening. Machine knitting is more to my liking, because you can knit pattern pieces fast (if there isn’t any problems, which case is very rare…) and the most time consuming part is steaming the pieces flat and sewing them together.
I wanted to make my dress timeless, comfortable and fitting, so I could wear it many years. The pale blue color was a safe choice too, because I don’t seem to stop liking it :-)
We have already much snow here and I have apparently hit a snow drift during my shoot, haha.

      Thank you! Great that you’re having own machine! I made the pattern myself by using my measurements and some knit pattern drafting instructions at our school, and made the stitch calculations based on a modelpatch. Hope you find some pattern or instructions on how to make one:)
