Draperie is the comfort of knitting and wearing garter stitch. The stretchy, squishy feel of the texture provides a fabric that drapes and wraps around your body wonderfully. The perfect item to casually throw on for extra warmth, Draperie can be worn with either side as the top; converting the piece from a cardigan to a more shrug-like piece instantly!

This garment has slight batwing sleeves, which means that the upper portion of the sleeve is not intended to sit right at the top of your arm. Consequently, the upper arm measurement will likely be smaller than your own upper arm measurement.
