Long, light, and gently shaped, with deep pockets and a versatile collar, Arbois is a gorgeous layer for cooler days.
Wear Arbois however you like; the generous length and comfortable fit make Arbois pretty over jeans or a dress. The collar, left open, frames your shoulders and neck prettily. Or, buttoned up, the collar slouches comfortably like a cowl.
I hope you enjoy the understated texture and the seamless construction in this relaxing and satisfying knit.

PS: A note about the yarn requirements
The sample shown used every bit of 10 skeins, so the pattern says 11. Chickadee is a wonderfully bouncy yarn, but this means it tends to go through yardage more enthusiastically than other yarns. You will quite possibly need less yarn than specified.
