“Low-profile I-cord is used as an edging and as an attached treatment to outline and highlight the overlapping panels of the otherwise simple Aria Shell. A linen blend yarn gives a mostly flat fabric intriguing richness.”

Construction Note: Front and back panels are each worked back and forth on the larger circular needle to create a fabric with more drape.Panels are then overlapped at the sides and joined using the smaller circular needle. Bodice is worked in the round to the armholes, then front and back are worked flat.

Sizing: Bodice is designed to fit with minimal ease, so directions for optional short-row bust shaping are included for cup sizes C, D, and DD.
