Worked in the round from the bottom up, Somerleyton features a beautiful textural detail at the center front, with a panel of lace for a bit of sex appeal. A clever keyhole at the back neck means you can get in and out of it with ease, and the presence of just two short shoulder seams means the piece is almost entirely seamless. Knit the coordinating cardigan, Highclere, for a classic twinset you'll wear for years to come!
