Annex

Knitting
April 2017
Aran (8 wpi) ?
16 stitches and 22 rows = 4 inches
in stockinette stitch, after wet blocking
US 9 - 5.5 mm
456 - 760 yards (417 - 695 m)

Annex is a shapely masterpiece, featuring lace and dropped stitch flourishes, plus godets at the hip. Norah’s flair for unique construction is apparent in this Kestrel tank top, worked in one long piece beginning at the front’s lower edge from the bottom up, over the shoulders and back down again to the back hem—with the godets (side panels) cleverly worked along the way.
