The Delkash Dress is a discretely fitted short dress with ¾ length sleeves worked in Stockinette Brioche. Like the more known ribbed Brioche Knitting, the Stockinette Brioche is an exciting way to work Brioche stitches – the main difference is that it creates a smoother fabric with slightly less drape and more hold than Brioche Knitting. Delkash = Attractive, named by the wonderful Garnsurr ladies!

Stockinette Brioche is also a superb entry point if you haven’t worked with Brioche before, as it removes the usual confusion about whether or not you are working a brk or a brp; in Stockinette Brioche brk and brp rows are worked separately and when working in the round you eliminate the brp completely.

Delkash Dress is knitted top-down with raglan sleeves. It is worked back and forth until the neckline is joined, the rest of the body and the sleeves are worked in the round. Last, the neckline sts are picked up and worked in the round. The dress is seamless, except from closing under arm holes and weaving in ends.
