LUCY VAN PELT
From Melvie by Allyson Dykhuizen
Knit in Pinguin Coeur de Laine and Cascade 220
So I’d been eyeing this pattern for a long time, and when I got about 1200 yards of superwash at a local yarn swap, I figured I’d take the plunge. I’d made a red striped handknit dress prior to this and thought this one would also work for me. Yeah, about that:
I’d been a little physically uncomfortable wearing this due to the HUGE collar and snug sleeves, but looking at this photo I see that the thing is just a hot mess. The pattern would look great on a taller, more athletic girl, but it just didn’t work for me.
Frogging this to make Miette, a design that will work much better for my figure.
