When I designed Deciduous, I was living in Los Angeles where appropriate times to wear thick cabled knits were measured in hours instead of days, weeks or months. I wanted to play with the way stitch pattern could shape a garment. Ribbing pulled the garment in to the waist, and gradually petered out into a reverse stockinette background that not only widened the garment to fit the bust, but also curled towards the body to finish the top edge.
The front and back of the garment are shaped identically. It is only the change in stitch pattern that creates the drape in front. The front charts organically flows from ribbing to reverse stockinette while the back chart maintains a near balance of knit to purl stitches in each row to keep the gauge consistent.
20 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches in Reverse Stockinette Stitch
