Fabulous Fairisle – Annie’s Stripey Dress

18 Oct

A couple of mornings ago I knitted Annie an outfit. I hope to make another one for Jeannie soon using similar wool.

The wool is Sirdar Crofter DK in shade 50 Bracken (greeny-grey), which I managed to buy reduced from my local yarn shop as it was an end of dye lot.

The needles used were size 3.00 mm and the cute pattern is adapted from Sylvie’s tutorial at Poupeesdesyl. I lengthened the tunic top to make it a dress, although it may still be a little short. The neckline followed her pattern, but does not quite look like Sylvie’s photo, so next time I may adjust it to what I think it should be.

Ps: How do you spell ‘stripey’?
