Dramatic Dressing Gown

When I saw this pattern, I fell in love with its romantic, dramatic look. I’m sure characters in the Bronte’s stories would wear this.

This dressing gown was lovingly made by my Mum. It was project for the summer, to be finished ready for the winter, but it’s already finished! 

So, if I lived at Wuthering Heights, this is the dressing gown I’d wear. Well, I’ll wear the dressing gown now. I just need a draughty old castle or house on the moors.

The pattern lists Rowan Kid Classic, which knits as double knitting yarn. I used a cotton mix yarn. It gives a lovely fall and drape without feeling too heavy.

Where would you wear it? Or who can you imagine wearing this? Message me if you want to know more about it or make enquiries about commissioning a knit.
