I made this dress when I first discovered the amazing world of Twinkle sweaters, and “Big City Knits” was my first book.
This is the dress on the cover of the book, and it is actually the second project I made.
The Tux Jacket is the first project I tried, and after I finished it, I decided I didn’t like how it looked.
So I undid the sweater (while my heart broke) and knit the sweater dress instead. Then, I dyed the whole thing black, which didn’t work and ended up this nice shade of periwinkle-purple.
The hat I made with left over yarn from the nantucket sweater, after I found this great pattern for a chunky hat by kath_red on whipup.net
It’s a really great quick-knit project if you have any leftover chunky yarn from your Twinkle Projects.
I threaded through a gold silk ribbon on mine for an accent.
Twinkle Soft and Chunky in rain, or any other bulky yard.
The sweater was originally a white alpaca bulky yarn which I later dyed using RIT Black.
