Saudade Dress


My latest FO and first dress for Gaby. It is seamless, top-down, saddle-shoulder raglan, slightly A shaped simple stockinette stitch dress, knitted in the round, perfect for our crisp spring days, as today.
And what is most important - she likes it and finds it warm and comfy.


The yarn is another Italian bobbin yarn - Natural Fantasy Condor 4, a wooly tweed with very complex composition - 62% wool, 6 % angora, 10% silk, 4% modal, 18% polyamide. It was rather coarse and uneven before washing, but as with most bobbin yarns, after washing and wet blocking the resulting texture is soft and pleasant to the skin.


Pattern: Saudade dress (personal pattern)
Yarn: natural Fantasy tweed, 200g
Needle: 3.25 mm, 3 mm
Time to knit: 17 days
