Now that fall is finally here and winter soon to follow, it’s time to take up the knitting needles once again and work on a great project. I found this fabulous vintage 1976 knitting pattern for The Super Dress. Knit in fluffy mohair, it is midi length with long sleeves and a cowl neckline. It just looks cozily warm, and the simple styling stands the test of time.
I think it would also look fab in fluffy angora! Think of the entrance you’d make wearing that! And the angora would be so soft and warm against your skin, adding to a more luxurious winter.

I love the way you think…
Hi – picture says see general directions for dress and bag, Unless I missed it, I do not see the bag. Is it on the next page ??? thanks for your input. Smiles
Oh wow, you have good eyes! Didn’t even notice the bag. I will have to see if I can find the issue where I got this pattern (in my stacks and stacks of magazines), to see if I can find the bag instructions. It’s really cute!
Hi, what a fabulous pattern. I SO want to knit it, but what would the needle size be in mm?
I suppose I could ust kee nitting until got the guage/ tension,
Sorry meant to say : just keep knitting.
The conversion size for a No. 8 needle would be 5.0 mm size. For the No. 9 needle, it would be the 5.5 mm size.
If you make this, please send me a photo so I can feature it on my blog – happy knitting!
