The Drops alpaca/silk blend creates a really luxurious fabric with excellent drape. This sweater dress is warm, silky and sexy.
This tunic is knitted in the round to the armhole, the front and back is then knitted separately to the shoulders which are joined by working a three needle cast off. The stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole and the sleeve caps shaped by working short rows and the sleeves knitted in the round, which means minimal finishing.
