You know my current obsession is slouchy dress-down sweaters over simple dresses, and I like ’em cropped, but I’m loving this long, all-platinum version photographed on Rachael Wang. To approximate her fisherman-cable sweater, all you need is Paton’s free pattern, the Honeycomb Aran pullover, knitted it in something luxe and silvery, such as Woolfolk’s Far in Color 03 or The Fibre Company’s Knightsbridge in Barley. Make it a size too big, and add a repeat or two above the hem.
If you’ve got the chops for sewing silk, you could easily make the dress to go under it. See April Rhodes’ Slip Dress pattern, which comes included with the Date Night Dress. Just cut it straighter and longer.
See Vanessa’s post for another look at Rachael’s outfit, head to toe.

This Honeycomb Aran is next in my to knit list, in winter white. It would look gorgeous in your yarn selection too.
These are very clever – and inspiring – posts. Love them!

I wish I were a better sweater knitter…I have so many sweater UFOs and just one completed Rosedale that I actually really love. Sigh. Maybe I should pick up those UFOs…
Whoops, got the first one right and the second one wrong. Thanks for catching that!
Oh I love the idea of pairing a silk skirt with a cozy cable sweater! Really beautiful!
I love this look so much!
