Oriental Orchid

Oriental Orchid

This is Oriental Lilly pattern by Georgie Hallam knit in Jimmy Riddles DK merino in the Orchid colourway.

My first attempt at a dress for Moomin, this pattern is knit in the round on circular needles so it’s really easy!

There were a few tricky bits – joining in the round & picking up stitches under the arms, but generally it wasn’t too challenging. I’d say advanced beginner.

The boring bits were all the purling on the top before you join up and the skirt which just seemed to go on forever!

I messed up the increases on the skirt so it’s a bit fuller than it should be, but generally I’m very pleased with it. It fits Moomin well & will suit a bit of negative ease (stretch) so should hopefully fit for a while.  Now to make the longies to go with it!
