By far, this has been one of the nicest items I have made(so I think). I dabbled in a little bead work as well for the first time and added beading to the neck line as I knitted. I wanted to use very subtle beads, I didn't want anything to stick out and be too obvious. So I used clear beads to give a little bit of sparkle to the top.
Yarn used was KnitPicks cotlin, which is a DK weight. Colours used were Flamingo and Swan. This is a cotton/linen (70 /30) blend which is perfect for the summer months. The original pattern is the Sydney Lace Dress. I decided to make this project into a long tunic and for my daughter to wear it with a skirt of pants.
