Bryony has a fitted back and cascade front that creates an effortless casual chic. Deceptively easy to make, Bryony can be worn loose or with a belt and when layered, has a simple look of sophistication. The ribbed detail on the back gives an added extra detail to make this a striking garment.

Fantastic project for novice knitters to gain confidence but with enough structural detail to keep accomplished knitters interested.
