RUSTICANA ~ single printed pattern** 

A simple, relaxed sheath dress with a flattering V neckline, Rusticana is the sort of garment you will want to live in all season long.  Knit it in Apple Oak Fibre Works rustic spun Lincot, for a lightweight and durable dress that will keep you cool in summer.   Or choose a woolly DK to aran weight yarn for a cozy winter knit.  The basic design works especially well for showcasing unevenly spun yarns, yarns with textural interest, and yarns with dramatic colour variegation.  Suitable for advanced beginners.  ~ Designed by Ailbíona McLochlainn 

MATERIALS & INFO

Yarn

Apple Oak Fibre Works Lincot, 220m (240y) / 100g (3.5oz)

Shown in the Truffles colourway

5 (5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8) skeins

*Note that this yarn is unusual, in that the meterage is DK but it meets gauge like an aran-weight yarn, due to its unevenly spun nature. If substituting with a more traditional yarn, choose an aran-weight yarn and purchase 1 extra skein. Or choose DK weight yarn and note that it will be worked above gauge.

Needles

Needle A: circular needle, 4mm (US 6) in diameter (or as needed to meet gauge)

Needle B: circular needle, 3mm (US2) in diameter (or 1mm smaller than Needle A)
