Dresses… Knitted or crochet, I just love making and wearing them.
Usually I come up with the ideas only after making several swatches, figuring out what I can do with the yarn. But this dress has been in my mind for ages. I knew I wanted a simple striped dress of classic silhouette.
This dress has been in WIPs for 4 months. I didn’t want to hurry, I wanted to do everything properly. I took my time preparing a swatch, doing all the numbers and choosing colors.
I just can’t tell you how comfortable it is. The cotton is so cozy and incredibly soft. A delight to wear.
The dress was knit on Silver Reed LK 150 knitting machine. Stitch dial – 4.
The dress features a basic reverse stockinette stitch. I love how white is mixing in with grey.

The neckline is trimmed with double crochet.
The armhole openings are trimmed with single crochet.

These pictures were taken by my very talented friend, Elena Letitskaya, at one of the most beautiful places here – a local marina. I just love this place, which is so peaceful and quiet in the morning…
It was such a beautiful morning. The air was fresh, even chilly. Knitwear weather.
