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


  1. What a great color and love the tweedy bits. I love how your daughter is still up for a photo shoot at her age.

    1. Thank you! She is a girl of very sweet disposition, pretty exceptional for her generation, even if I say so myself :)
