I love to work with organic yarns but some of them do tend to be a little on the scratchy side. The yarn I have chosen for this pattern is so wonderfully soft that it is perfect to wear next to the skin. I designed Roscoff to be a beach cover-up but it can be worn over a slip as a dress or the chunky rib can be pushed up to hug the hips and worn as a slouchy top. The really daring amongst us can wear it on it's own! Because of the stitch construction this garment will torque, causing the faux seams to spiral across the body. This was intentional but if you prefer to have the faux seams at the sides it is easy to twist the garment to where you would like it to sit.
71/2 stitches x 121/2 rows = 4"/10cm worked in Mesh Pattern in the round using US 15/10mm knitting needles or size needed to obtain gauge.
Note: The knitted piece will be very elastic and the body will stretch in length when worn.
