There’s truly nothing we love more in winter than a stylish turtleneck sweater dress – your absolutely necessary piece (aka SINE QUA NON), that makes you feel confident and comfortable in winter. Length of cuffs and collar can be worked to desired length. Decide whether you wish to leave a simple V-neck or add a generous turtleneck so you won’t need a scarf when wearing this dress. It’s easy to style it with any long coat and boots for a fashion-forward winter look.
This sweater dress is made in four rectangular trapezoids sewn together to a relaxed silhouette with not well-defined shoulders – thus, it suits all types of shoulders (broad, narrow, sloping and straight).
The main part in each trapezoid is worked in straight rows, back and forth, with the same number of stitches. You will repeat the same 2 elements over and over. For shaping each trapezoid you will decrease 1 stitch per stated number of rows (this number differs for sizes, but you will decrease 1 stitch per row). A constant repeat of the same rows and no shaping makes this pattern suitable for intermediate-level crafters who enjoy watching TV while creating their dreamiest outfits.
