Pattern #: 60721AD Cable luxe maxi
Created By: Olga Knyaz
Pattern Source: other:

I didn't use LION BRAND yarn, but the pattern only. The dress is very beautiful. For a long time I couldn't decide to attach the sleeves or not because it looks great even sleeveless. But then I decided that it needed sleeves because its weight is more than 2 lbs, and it would be impossible to find occasions to wear such a big, warm but sleeveless dress. But for those who knits just the tunic I would recommend to make a sleeveless version too.

I used thinner yarn (elastisized cotton) that is why I had to make size XL for my size S. And in my opinion the dress required flared 3/4 sleeves.

Although the pattern has lots of mistakes not included in the errata, I would highly recommend it to experienced knitters because the idea itself is great, the dress looks ROYAL, espesially if you don't care that it will add you visually 2 sizes, even if it is made of thin yarn (probably you will look 3 to 4 sizes bigger if use the recommended yarn). I don't mind looking not very skinny and lady-like that is why I adore the dress. I wear it on special occasions and sometimes to work when I'm in a special mood :-)
