A chunky summer dress knit with two strands of worsted weight cotton yarn held together. This light as air fabric was created with a yarn that has a chain construction making it especially springy.
This dress has a low swooping back and is knit from the bottom up in one piece. A great option for beginners ready to tackle their first garment, the trickiest part are the short rows used to shape the lower hem (which is longer in the back than the front).
The Bridget Dress was named for Bridget Bishop as part of my Brave Women Series. Bridget Bishop was the first woman in the United States executed for witchcraft.
