Notes

My tutorials. See my tutorial how to block dresses: https://www.heavenlyclassyknits.com/tutorials

I love German doily patterns. They are so detailed! This is my first German doily by Herbert and I am very excited! But as usual, I am not interested in doilies. I will attempt a dress adaptation from it…once again. Let’s go!

Skirt. I have started with 5 repetitions Row # 29-269 on needles #4. For the last few rows of the skirt part I have switched the color from copper to curry..

Top. The top was done from bottom up after stitches were picked up from the waist. It was knitted in one seamless piece in rwt stitches pattern (like the top of the acorn). Needles #1 were used to make the top for more dense fabric.

Collar. I have picked up stitches from the top around the neckline. Rows # 27-51. Needles #4 and #6 (half way). Also switched the color from copper to curry half way. I used 6 repetitions for the collar.

Notes on the yarn. I love this yarn. Easy to work with. Beautifully shines in the sun. Very light, almost weightless. Love this project!!

I think I used only 2,000 yards of the yarn for this project. Still have hundreds and hundreds yards of yarn left over. What I am going to do with all of that? HMM… maybe another dress ;))?
