Description

Joanne Krantz masses simple Irish crochet rose motifs along the front of the Posy Slip for a decadently rich, sweetly old-fashioned feel. Knitted in the round in a daisy slip-stitch pattern that drapes but does not sag, the dress is simply shaped by changing needle sizes. A lustrous silk looks delicate but gives the fabric surprising strength.
