Icon Dress knitting pattern
Icon Dress is a fitted dress with an A-line skirt finished with a picot edge. Plaited cables run the shole length of the dress and triangular moss stitch panels create the flare of the skirt. The neck line is square and the shoulder straps widen slightly towards the shoulder. A fake row of buttons make a central feature at the front and a narrow rib finish the armholes and neckline. The pattern is written with negative ease between 3-6cm.
The knitting pattern includes complete written instructions, diagrams with measurements and photos.
