Pure wool dress
The Assia dress is a model perfectly adapted to the morphology of young children: loose on the bottom of the skirt, then tightened on the yoke. The top of the bodice is knitted in fancy stitch and the borders are embellished with a contrasting jacquard pattern. The dress is closed in the back with a snap. It is knitted in Diam, a soft and warm merino wool, which gives this outfit extra comfort.
How to knit the dress
The Assia Dress is knitted with circular needles n°3,5. To knit it, you need to know the basic knitting techniques:
- Knit stitches and purl
- Increase and decrease
- Pick up stitches for the nekline
If you know these techniques, you can get started on this project. Knitting beginners will benefit from help with decreases and pick up stitches
Several colour combinations are available. Choose the one you want to knit. Then select the child's size, allowing for a sufficient margin (do not take the size corresponding to the exact age of the child but 1 size above).
The knitting kit
Everything you need to make the Assia Dress is included in the kit: balls of merino wool, the optional circular needles, the press stud and the knitting pattern with step-by-step explanations for sizes 12, 18 and 24 months, 4 and 6 years.
To make the dress you will also need a pair of scissors, a tape measure, a wool needle and marker. Visit our haberdashery page to complete your accessories.
