‘It’s all beachy’ Cotton Dress

A simple to follow pattern perfect for beginner knitters. This dress has a boatneck and open sleeves, making it easy to slip on and comfortable to wear over a bikini on the beach or as a summer dress.

The simple design has alternate knit sections with decorative purl rows and is available to knit in different lengths depending on what style you prefer to wear.

The pattern includes sizes 6-28 – it has a generously oversized fit so if you’d like it smaller please go down a size.

Knit from bottom to top in the round, you finish with a gentle rib around the sleeves and can wear the dress off the shoulder or choose a narrower boatneck. We like to wear it loose or styled with a belt.

The pattern is available as an instant download and includes a ‘how to knit’ guide.


Small (UK 6-10) 62cm wide

Medium (UK 12-16) 68cm wide

Large (UK 18-22) 74cm wide

X Large (UK 24-28) 79cm wide

Length (all sizes) 75cm long (although you can make longer/shorter)


Chloe is wearing size small in Canary and size small in Mallard. Clementine & Midnight are also shown in images.
