Icon Dress Knitting Pattern
This is truly an iconic piece of hand knitting! A large project with beautiful cables, textured panels and a stunning shape that really gives this dress an edge. The neckline is very flattering and the way it nips in at the waist give a proper hourglass silhouette. If you’re not feeling the “knitted dress on bare skin” thing, wear it layered with shirts or a fitted jumper underneath or with a cardigan over the top.
Bring out your ‘inner Marilyn’ by making this wonderful Dress. On our blog, we have so many fantastic images of customers wearing the Icon they have made and Ravelry too shows accomplished finished projects. They all have one thing in common, they are delighted with the result and enthuse about this fabulous design and how well it fits. A great confidence builder in every way.
