Fall Dress

Pattern: Adapted from 2 Drops Design Patterns (a)this and (b)this
Yarn: Rowan Wool Cotton
Needle: 4.5mm, 4mm
Notes: Finally finished this! Casted on 304 stitches in the round, and worked straight in the lace pattern for (b). I created the gathers at the waistline by using the cable decrease technique. I then continue with the bodice based on pattern (a) with the stitch count for the second sizing. Screwed up a bit at the fair isle portion, but luckily the mistake was at the beginning of a pattern row, so the pattern still looks correct on it's own. I managed to get back on track for the next pattern group. I stopped the fair isle after the 4-sided stars, after which I ended the piece with ribbing for the neckline. (I looked kinda fat in the photo.. ><)
