There is no stitch pattern to download for this garment.
Inspiration: I have always been intrigued by dressmaker and tailoring details. This is inspired by a basic dressmaker shape, modified to some extent. It is important to remember that, whatever the type of dressmaker garment we want to knit, the knitted version will be different, in its fabric, from the original which is usually woven. Knitted garments will also require different construction methods.
Size: petite (Bust - waist - hips: 88 - 68 - 88 cm)
Machine: Electronic standard gauge Brother KH965i
Yarn: 100% wool, Molins (Paris), 2/28 Nm. 2 strands.
Total amount used: 550grs.
Tension: 1 on both carriages, with slide lever on II. The close knit bar is used.
Gauge: 10 x 10 cm: 36 stitches x 88 rows.
The shape was designed in Original Pattern Drafting.
Note: I like to take my shapes into Interactive Knitting and “knit them manually” before starting the actual knitting, to make sure everything is OK.
By “knit manually”, I mean using Interactive Knitting *without the machine*, i.e. using the UP arrow tool.
