When it comes to a light and airy summer dress with just a touch of sexy, The Michelle mini-dress or tunic could become your favorite. It was designed for Solo Lino yarn, the recycled linen eco-yarn. The pleasantly simple pattern is worked from the top down in one piece with no seams to be sewn. And as you progress the needle size increases 3 times to create the A-line profile and a skirt that has a little swish when you walk. The design is simple, knitting it is simple and the result is simply charming.

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
