To complete this pattern, you must have knitting skills. Its knitting is complicated by the fact that there is no specific knitting system. The patterns are arranged chaotically, transitions from one pattern to another occur at different angles. The description graphically depicts or describes the patterns used by the author. But you can also use several patterns you have chosen, which are not very difficult to execute and the repeat of which will not exceed 14-16 loops.

Naturally, the patterns have different densities, so individual fragments will look pulled together or folded. Don't let this bother you. You need to knit with a high degree of fit. This dress can be called a “second skin”. When the fabric fits tightly, all the “irregularities” of the patterns are smoothed out. To make knitting easier, make a life-size pattern and outline it in accordance with Fig. 18 or at your discretion, number each element according to the number of the pattern that you will use.

Distribute the patterns so that on the line of the hips and chest there are looser patterns that do not tighten the fabric. And on the waist line, place patterns that are denser, tightening the fabric. It is necessary to arrange the patterns so that when sewing the side seam they coincide. To determine the knitting density, knit several samples measuring at least 20x20 cm using different patterns. Using the middle part of the sample, make an approximate calculation of the knitting density. Make calculations for knitting fabric according to your measurements. The author's knitting density is 23 loops per 10 cm. 

Knit the back and front with one piece. Start knitting from the corner side of ABCG. Cast on 54 loops (AB). In each subsequent row, make two increases as follows: at the beginning of the row after the edge and at the end of the row before the edge, we make yarn overs. Knit the already thrown loops in accordance with the pattern. On each side of the bevels, add 79 loops (VG). Knit the corner part with bevels using pattern No. 6. The bevel angle will be 30 degrees.

Switch to knitting in different patterns, according to your pattern. For convenience, use markers. It is necessary to take into account when knitting a new pattern over the previous one that when introducing one loop into a new pattern, the angle of transition from knitting to knitting will be 45 degrees, and when using two loops - 30 degrees. Place the braid (pattern No. 12) from the beginning of knitting in this way: knit 14 loops with pattern No. 17, 2 IP, 12 LP braids, 2 IP, continue the row with the selected patterns. At a height of 74 cm from the beginning of knitting, close the armholes. In every second row, cast off 4,2,1,1,1 loops respectively (9 loops in total).

In Fig. 18 armholes are located on the sides of the knitting and in the center of the fabric. Now we separately knit the top of the back and front. For the back, knit 17 cm of fabric from the beginning of the armhole and bind off the loops. Before knitting with neckline. At a height of 11cm from the armhole, cast off the middle 32 loops, then in every second row of the left half, cast off 6 6,6,6,4 loops. Knit the right side in a mirror manner. The neckline is decorated with a braid. For it, cast on 17 loops: 3 LP (garter stitch), 12 LP - braid, 1 IP and 1 connecting stitch.

For the sleeve, cast on 44 loops, knit 40 cm, increasing 11 times by 1 loop at the beginning and end of the row. Knit the head of the sleeve, closing the loops on both sides in every second row in the following sequence: 3, 3, 14 times 1 loop. Sew the side seam of the dress fabric, sew in the sleeves. Decorate the bottom of the dress with fringe.
