Veneta Shell is a versatile layering top. Its highly textured surface gives its sculptural appeal. The overall 4-st cable is easy to memorize and can be done without a cable needle. Knitted from the bottom up in the round, the only finishing required is the shoulder three-needle bind-off.
Written and charted directions are given for the stitch pattern. Measurements are given in both centimeters and inches.
