So here’s the thing. I want a Missoni dress or top.
Basically you knit a long chevron tube and stripe it with different yarns. Sounds easy peasy.
Should I make it with cotton yarn or viscose yarn? IDK..
Let’s CO at the hem and work our way up. My last dress had a flared skirt, so let’s make this basically straight.
I don’t like sleeveless dresses (I live in Chicago), so the dress should have cap sleeves. Or be a loose t-topper style top.
Yes, let’s make a loose dress with shortie sleeves.
I want the dress to have positive ease, but the yarn I’m choosing is SUPER loose, so maybe I should knit to a no ease size.
How do I prevent the dress from growing? Crochet sc at the hem, sleeves and neck.
How else to prevent the dress from growing? I could tack out grosgrain ribbon and sew that in, but that seems really tedious.
I can’t be lazy about this, because I want to wear the dress more than once.
Size panels in a contrast stitch. Purl? Garter? Seed?
This dress will need to be worn with a slip.
