A few weeks ago, I cast on a test knit for my talented friend, Cosy, for her latest design, Orsolya.
To say I enjoyed it would be an understatement.
Not only did I finish this with lightening speed (after all, it’s knit with worsted weight)…
…I’ve already cast on for a second which is half way done, and I have a third going on directly after I’m done binding off. I’ve had some yarn sitting in the stash for at least five years waiting for the perfect project and this is it!
This dress is such a fabulous little knit; I can not begin to tell you how sweet it is.
The bit of eyelet trim, the teeny pockets…
The top down construction with no seaming.
It’s a great length for toddling around, although I believe Cosy also includes a shorter tunic length if you’d rather that.
For this knit I worked up the 18m size using some Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora, which sadly has been discontinued. It blocked out with an ever-so-slight halo (love!), and the stitches “fulled out” a bit, causing my gauge to go a little wide. That’s OK, she’ll get plenty of use out of this. This year as a dress… next year as a top.
