Little red dress

This is my first project from sagornas stickbok, lilkans klänning. The story is about a girl (lillan) who goes on an adventure riding on a cat. 

The yarn

Cascade 220 sport, in ruby

The knitting

The pattern was generally well written although I’m unused to reading instructions in Swedish. I made a few amendments to the shoulders and picked up stitches for the sleeves rather than knitting separate pieces. 

I knit a picot edge on both the sleeves and hem.

The buttons are flat mother of pearl which look absolutely perfect.

Picked up stitches for the sleeve

Lots of stocking stitch knitting = perfect train knitting!
