When I saw this ZIG ZAG dress on LionBrand.com I knew I needed one of my own. I had this stash of yarn from all of my travels and wool convention purchases and I knew they would all go great together in this dress!
I started over at least 3 times because the cast on was close to 500 and I kept TWISTING (even after some crazy efforts to NOT TWIST!) On my 3rd frogging, I noticed JUST how wide the dress was going to be--I knew this was so that it would have ripples in it...but I decided halving that number would suit me just fine.
It's not that swishy, but I like that even better because you can really see the chevron stripes. It also must have taken about HALF the time right?
I love how it turned out. One of my favorite experiences in knitting is combing yarns to create a unique fabric. I used it ALL in this dress and I think it is splendid.
Special thanks to my 10 year old daughter for photographing the dress!
