Well, we all believe that Spring ought to be around the corner, but in the meanwhile it is still pretty cold outside.

Trying not to have too many clothes, I nonetheless been eyeing that secret little trend in the world around me : ‘sweater dresses’. Most sweater dresses I see tend to be ‘not quite dresses’ and ‘not quite sweaters’. But reminding you of both.

To fuel that need for ‘hip stuff that’s useful too’, I am sharing yet another one of my sweater dresses for you. I’m treating you to one free pattern at a time… ~ to keep a bit of suspense going and to give you GOOD reasons to bookmark FineCraftGuild.com and come back after today….

Here’s the third free knitting pattern in this wonderful sweater dresses mini-series:

Sweater Dress :: Free Knitting Patterns

Union Jack sweater dress pattern:

which you could use to make the Max Mara and Gucci & Bluegirl dresses. Adjust the details: i.e. omit the union jack and add stripes. For the Bluegirl dress, you must increase at the hips to create a more balloon shape and adjust the front hem line to be shorter. Switch yarn colors at the waist.


Hermes Sweater-dress pattern:

which you could use to make a dress that more or less works like the one of Les Copains. As well, to understand how to make an over-sized V-neckline.



Coarsely knit dress pattern with wide scoop neckline.:

to make a sweater similar to Anteprima’s first featured dress.




I also want to show another pattern, of our tuxedo sweater dress knitting pattern, which shows an asymmetrical hem line, ~ i.e. a feature that was popular among many designers in their collection for this year. Tuxedo and other tailored jackets, paired with woolen cardigans and sweater dresses were popular.



In the collections of the various world-famous fashion designers at the Milan Fashion Show there were quite a few knitted cardigans with collars just like this one. Click link for the free knitting pattern for this fashionable womens cardigan

  1. Wow Rose, that’s pretty outstanding! Love the Union Jack and as a sweater dress, how stylish! Thank you so much for both patterns, it’s more than I can handle, but it’ll be bookmarked! So maybe I could convince my mother to knit for me :-) have a great weekend :-)
