PetiteKnit – Chestnut Dress
This is a printed pattern in Swedish. The pattern is only sent if you buy at least 2 balls of yarn at the same time. We reserve the right to cancel orders that do not comply with this.
Chestnut Dress is knitted from the top down. First, the upper part of the back is knitted back and forth, while the slope of the shoulders is shaped with shortened rounds to get a good fit. After this, the shoulder parts are knitted separately back and forth on circular needle. These are brought together at the front to form the front piece. Front piece and back are then joined to form the torso, which is knitted in the round on a circular needle. The sleeves are worked out from picked-up sts along the sleeve opening and worked around on circular needles and double pointed needles or with Magic Loop technology. The large polo collar of the neck is finally knitted out of picked up stitches.
Knit a test patch to find the stitch size that gives you the right stitch strength.
Chestnut Dress should have a range of motion ( positive ease) of approx. 30 cm in relation to your bust measurement. The fit is oversized. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL correspond to a bust measurement, measured on your own body, of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110- 120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm. The measurements of the finished dress are given on the front of the pattern. Before you start knitting, measure yourself to find the size that fits you best. If you e.g. measures 90 cm around the bust (or the widest part of your body), you should knit a size S. A dress in size S has an overall width of 120 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of movement ( positive ease ) of 30 cm.
