Jacket pattern by Nathalie from her blog in French but a very easy pattern found here. I used 4ply yarn which was reasonably thick for 4ply rather than fingering.
I showed this on the Knitting page but this is just for easy reference on this no comment thread.Mon 18th June 2018 at 4:37 am #23616
Here’s the finished Viipuri Dress, inspired by the Russian Dress.
Viipuri was the town in Finland where my mother-in-law was born. It is now part of Russia and is called Vyborg.
It’s knit using fingering/4-ply yarn. There are two skirt options: a shorter, fuller skirt and a longer skirt that’s still pretty full. the bodice has a lace-like pattern across the front and a stockinette back.
The original Russian Dress is found in this blog post, with the one change in the skirt, so instead of having a swirled skirt, it has a balanced skirt. the lace bodice is the same as the Russian Dress original pattern. To make the swirled skirt, start the was the balanced skirt is made, but from Round 3 on, Make 1 YO right before last st in each panel every other round instead of 1 YO after first st and right before last st in each panel every 4th rnd (or every 6th rnd is an option).
Don’t forget, no comments here. I’ll post a photo in the knitting, crochet and sewing thread, and you can comment or ask questions there.Sun 17th June 2018 at 10:23 am #23597
I forgot to post here again in the pattern, no comment section! It is a good resource though so better late than never.

I keep forgetting to post here, too. It’s too bad we don’t have a “like” button, but I’m sure everyone has exclaimed their admiration for these treasures elsewhere.
So here is my Stavanger Cardigan. This is the sheep version. I have a kitty version I will make up when I finish my current project, which I should also post here.
The Stavanger is a Norwegian-style cardigan designed to be a beginning steeking project, although you could knit it flat. It just would take longer.
(I wonder how many sheep are in Stavanger….)Thu 31st May 2018 at 12:46 pm #22942Thu 31st May 2018 at 12:39 pm #22938
Here is an old dress pattern for a Sasha doll but it fits AGAT Nisha well.Thu 31st May 2018 at 12:36 pm #22934
This is the Liberty Jane Avila Aviator Jacket pattern purchased from Pixie Faire. I printed it off at 90% instead of 100% and then added the original length back to the front and back. The sleeves have the original length plus 1/2 inch extra added. The ribbing cuffs, waistband and neck were shortened to 90% of the length, but used I the original width. It closes well at this width.
Made with a light/medium weight waffle weave fabric with silver threads running through it. Sulky metallic silver ribbon was used for topstitching. The lining is quilting cotton.

This is the Katie dress by Debonair Designs. I went up a needle size to 3.5 mm so to give a looser fit and a longer length. I also didn’t do the lateral braid but just substituted another purl row. I think the dress hangs better that way. Any comments on the knitting page, as this topic is no comment!! Thanks 🙂Wed 11th October 2017 at 7:20 am #15655

Here are the instructions for what I did for the long sleeve lacy version of the Poppy dress pattern available free here
I put the sleeves on waste yarn and knitted them in the round after the body, but you could knit them flat too, but you would have to do that before you knit the body. I knitted 30 rows for the sleeves then 3 rows garter stitch and cast off purlwise.
I increased to 121 stitches for the body after working a couple of rows in stocking stitch. I worked the lace pattern below which I found on the internet. However I ended up not using the ssk but k2tog through back of loop as it was quicker.
After the lace I worked 3 rows garter stitch and cast off purlwise.
Row 1: k1, *k1, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2, rep from * to last 8 sts then; k1, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2
Row 2 and all even rows: Purl all
Row 3: k1, * k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k1, rep from * to last 8 sts then; k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k1
Row 5: k2tog, * yo, k5, yo, k3tog, yo, k5, yo, k3tog, rep from * to last 7 sts then; yo, k5, yo, ssk
Row 7: k1, * yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo, k1, rep from * to last 8 sts then; yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo, k1
Row 9: k1, * k1, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k2, rep from * to last 8 sts then; k1, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k2
Row 11: k1, * k2, yo, k3tog, yo, k5, yo, k3tog, yo, k3, rep from * to last 8 sts then; k2, yo, k3tog, yo, k3
Row 12: Purl
12 rows make up pattern
Number of stitches for this pattern is multiples of 16 + 9
