Basic dresses are perfect foundations for knits. They’re versatile, take accessories well, and are free of details that obscure the lines of intricate knitwear. When modelling our Knitting Patterns, I often choose to wear our Pretty Basic Jersey Dress. A basic bodycon dress doesn’t take attention away from a knit, and works with all designs. Today, I wanted to show you my favorites of Jersey Dress + Knit -combos in this Pretty Basic Knit Looks Post!
Combining knits with crochet details has always been something that I like to do. With Violets On Stripes, I took combined two techniques into one design. Stripy knit fabric turned into a super-short cardigan with crochet flowers scattered along one shoulder and the back. This little cardigan is pretty much the cutest thing I’ve ever made! It goes wonderfully with our Jersey Dress, adding a layer of warmth to the basic dress.
Shrugs are most often worn with long skirts and corsets, but I like to pair them up with other kinds of outfits, too. Our Faux Cable Shrug is one of my favorites, and I’m actually thinking about knitting one in black, too. My green one is beautiful and delightfully warm, but the color clashes with many things I like to wear. The green shrug looks nice with a black Jersey Dress, though, and I love this look to bits!
Lune, our stripy scarf, was born by accident much like all of my favorite patterns. The design process is somehow easier when I don’t feel the need to create, and just do whatever feels natural. Lune came to me very easily, and I love it. The design is super-easy to knit, and the result is comfy and versatile. Lune looks lovely with our Jersey Dress, and goes beautifully with my fingerless version of Lovelace Gloves!
Sharing sneak peeks can be considered impolite, but I still like to share views of what’s coming soon. This short-sleeved cardigan pattern will come out this autumn. It’s first on my after summer vacation To-Do List, so I’m guessing the pattern will be launched in September. This little cardigan is designed for cotton yarn. It looks basic from the front, but the back holds a little surprise! I call this one DiagoNelly, and love the way it looks with our Jersey Dress.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s Pretty Basic Knit Looks!
Until next time.
