Linen Dress.


I have teased you with some pictures of my linen dress in the last post and finally the dress is finished and I can show it to you :)) Beautiful linen for this dress was gifted to me by Anna. All edges of this dress are beaded. The beads were attached by the hook. This is my first knitted dress and first time working with linen. I loved the yarn and will definitely work with linen again. It is perfect for summer and very nice to knit with. Not all stitch patterns that I have considered for this dress looked great in linen and it took some searching and sample knitting to find the pattern I liked. In the end I have chosen Estonian lace pattern called "Half Leaf Pattern" from the "The Haapsalu shawl" book.  If I would knit this dress again I would maybe do sides of the dress (this is where increases were done) a little different, but overall I am very happy with the way my dress has turned out.

Yarn:  SIŪLAS Lithuanian Linen 4ply  (2.29 skeins = 1259.5 yards (1151.7m))
Needles: US 2 - 2.75 mm
Design: my own
Construction: seamless topdown
Beads:  Miyuki 8/0 color #4217DC, about 1000.
Project on Ravelry





















Happy Knitting,
Diana

Your dress is absolutely beautiful! The beaded edges make it extra special.

Will you be releasing a pattern for it? It's certainly something I would love to knit if you did.

Красивое платье,цвет приятный, прохладный. И реглан, и отделка бисером придают изысканность и очень к месту! Ажур великолепный- так и просится на воздушную шальку:)) ОЧередное BRAVO- МАСТЕРУ!!
