Named for Dita Von Teese, the Glamour Girl extrodinaire, this sexy sweater was designed using Malabrigo Caracol, which I described as, “looking like Rasta wearing fishnet stockings”, hence, its namesake!
A mix of stitches keeps the knitting fun, as well as adding shape and texture to this oversized, and boxy pullover.
