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. Worked in two pieces then sewn together at the end.
Knitting techniques include: Cable, left and right increasing and decreasing
Due to the weight of this dress on the needles, it is recommend to use circular needles.
