The color devotee, Veera Välimäki, turns her talents to a softer tone-on-tone palette knit in Classic Elite Yarns’ Inca Alpaca. A mock-cable eyelet panel at the back yoke and sleeves, knit cuff to cuff, reveals a hint of skin. The remaining sections are picked up and knit in multiple directions: first, the striped back panel, then the open fronts, which are worked in one piece—forming the chic fold-over collar—and shaped with short rows. Ribbed borders finish the look.
