The dress is knitted top down, with a vent in the neck and one crochet loop as buttonhole. The yoke is knitted in stockinette stitch and the rest of the body in the Erantis lace pattern. For shaping the neck opening, you knit short rows (German short rows). At the neck opening, the sleeves and the body, you knit an I-cord bind off as an edge. The Erantis lace pattern might seem uneven while knitting, but unfolds perfectly after washing and blocking.
