Flattering on every shape and size, the pattern is written for sizes XS - 2X You’ll love the feel of the soft bamboo yarn as it’s gliding across your fingers, and the subtle changes in color create a unique and interesting fabric. Leave off the added sleeves for cap sleeves. Wear it open or add a pretty brooch for closure. Dangling Bobbles make this a fun design to make and wear!

This is basically a rectangle with flared ends. It is folded in half. Sides are seamed up with openings for the armholes. Then you flip the front over and put that end behind your neck. The front end becomes the collar behind the neck.

I love the stitch pattern and this silk yarn!
