Al Mare is for knitters who like simple designs. It features an asymmetric hemline and is designed to be worn with plenty of positive ease so that the fluidity of the fabric gives a slimmering effect.

It is worked from the bottom up in pieces. Measurements are given in both centimeters and inches.
