This sack-like dress was a marathon to knit and a dye lot challenge. The enjoyment of working with the beautiful Tinde (cable section) along with a focused effort to combine a mixture of dye lots into the sleeve portion to create beautiful subtle stripes, makes this garment a special work of art.

Elements of Design: “Gyro is an oversized dress with bat sleeves knitted in two yarn thicknesses and colours. The center cable panel crowns the dress and ends in a wide neck with an I-cord bind off. Gyro is an old Norwegian female name, well suited to this dress or tunic made in pieces and sewn or crochet together with a garter stitch sleeve band.” Linda Marveng
