Zircon Sweater/Dress

EN/FR
$ 14

Note: This is a PDF pattern. You will receive a digital file, to be printed at home or at a copyshop. 

With its bold geometric yokes in contrasting fabric, the Zircon Sweater/Dress is sure to make you stand out. The yokes extend into the sleeve, creating an interesting shape and a softly rounded shoulder. The loose cocoon shape is comfortable to wear without feeling swamped. The relaxed fit is complemented by bracelet length tapered sleeves. The crew neck is finished with a neckband.

Both views have hem insets. The sweater has one on both sides that mirrors the yoke at the sleeve. The dress has a more elaborate one that mirrors the yoke, displayed here on one side. These insets give you more possible variations: they can be set in on both sides, on one side only or left out completely.

View A is a sweater, resting just above the hips. View B is a dress of mid-thigh length. The model in the photo’s is 5’10” and wears size 3 tapered to 4 at the hips. The sweaters are lengthened to compensate for height, the dress is not.
