Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Follow instructions "at the same time", work buttonholes while working body in rows as determined by instructions.

Pattern Description:

From evening wear to casual wear, this piece is perfect for that little over the shoulder coverage. Looks classy with a dress and oh-so cute with jeans.

Construction: The piece is worked flat, back and forth with circular needles; top down raglan; worked all in one piece including front band and neck are all worked at the same time as body and yoke. Once you're done with the body you're pretty much finished other than putting the stitches from the sleeves back on the needle and finishing the remaining portion of the sleeves. It goes pretty fast.

Pattern is both written and charted.
