Original Pattern: Blue Danube
Knitter Extraordinaire: krumel (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Modified the original long sleeved sweater pattern to be a sleeveless dress! Plenty of great photos and more information can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: There is a lot to love about this stunning knitted dress, don’t you think? First of all, I constantly forget that you can basically just lengthen a sweater (especially a top-down pattern like this one) and try it on as you go, adding in waist shaping and adjusting for hips as necessary. That’s the best part of using a top down pattern for a dress, you know exactly how things are turning out as you knit it.
Secondly, for those in warmer climates and prone to sweater envy, what a brilliant idea to take a sweater pattern and make it sleeveless! Or even short sleeves! Just because a knitting pattern has full sleeves doesn’t mean you have to knit them. I’m in awe of this stunning dress – so pretty, and perfect for warmer weather or climates!
