This is a classic fisherman’s sweater from Bretagne, but shaped for the female form and knit with the latest bottom-up, contiguous technique. This ensures a perfect fit around the shoulders. It has a gentle A-line, narrow sleeves and a slightly deepened crew neck line.
It’s knit in the round, bottom-up, the picked-up and knit neckband is in stockinette. The hems are left free to roll up gently.

The silk in the yarn makes for a great drape.*
