Hmm...can't find one for adults, but there probably is one somewhere..

How about find a wrap sweater you like, then add a skirt to it.

Or check out your library for books. I know my library sytem is getting "Knit so Fine" as I am already on the que to borrow it when they have it ready for checking out.

I did check the library and they won't be getting it in. The libraries here have pattern books from the 70s. It's ridiculous. Maybe I should go to Borders book store and see if they have it and if they do just write out the pattern. that's just a really pretty dress.

I went ahead and went to Borders and wrote out the pattern it took about 1 1/2 hours to write it but it was all worth it. Now if I can just figure out how to change the pattern to worsted weight yarn instead of fingering weight...any suggestions?

Whoa..that is such a huge difference in weights I don't think I'd even attempt it. I guess you could do a gauge swatch and see where to go from there.

What about DK weight? I just can't get fingering weight yarn without spending a TON of money.

It's closer than worsted. The very closest would be sport.
