First I apologize if my english is not very good.

I designed this dress to have sometingh hot for cold winter. With a wool cardigan it is very hot and comfortable.

I have a bit of problem to settele how long it would be the skirt (how many rows).

In this work I try for the first time to make a pattern in english. I hope it is good.

The instructions for this knit dress are below or you can download the PDF for this pattern by clicking on the download now button above. You can see my other work on "soficraft.blogspot.com".
