We love a great summer knit featuring plant-based fibers, and we take notice when BC Garn Lino is utilized for the perfect summer dress. The Linen-Stripe Dress by Mari Lynn Patrick in Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2019 resonated with all of us who balk at the idea of wearing knitwear in the dead of summer. No sweat with this dress! ☀️
This modern classic features repetitive panels of openwork broken by relaxing stretches of stockinette stitch. The piece is worked in the round from the bottom up and is finished with a sewn-in elastic waist band that maintains the garments shape and provides long-term fabric stability.
The lace panels in this dress are relatively simple; if you are a lace novice this is a great project to wet your feet in openwork! Check out our Working from Charts: Lace, Part 4 for helpful Tips & Tricks to guide you through lace knitting.
