The Edgewater Sweater Dress is one of my designs that makes me most proud! I really wasn’t sure I could pull off a sweater dress that would be flattering on any body type! But with this one, I truly believe it will look great on anyone!
For this design I really just wanted to create some sort of crochet sweater dress that would look good, be comfortable, and not need another dress underneath it so you couldn’t see through.
I kind of stumbled upon the stitch combo when I was doing some swatching and it turned out to be a great stitch for a garment because it provided a lot of coverage but also a lot of stretch!
I went with a bottom up workup style because I wanted to be able to easily adjust the fit in areas like the hips and then again at the waist. It worked out exactly how I wanted it to, making the fit so flattering!
The Edgewater Sweater Dress is made with Lion Brand Jeans Yarn in the colorway Faded. I just love this yarn!
Jeans yarn is a lightweight worsted weight (#4) yarn that is very soft and has an amazing drape.
You’ll need 425-2100 yards of worsted weight (#4) yarn, depending on what size you make.
When you purchase the pattern you’ll get two pattern downloads! One pattern for children’s sizes 2-10 and one for adult sizes XS-2X.
The workup is really quite easy. You work it from the bottom up with the cowl neck and sleeves added at the end.
Therefore, you can adjust the length any way you want. If you want a really long dress just add more to the bottom portion of the dress. If you prefer to make it into just a tunic or a sweater, just work less length.
You’ll find that the pattern is rated intermediate in difficulty. The stitches used are very basic and create a great texture and stretch. You will need to be able to take measurements and try on as you go to get the best fit and look.
