Etty is a sculptural wool vest/ summer top with cap-sleeves. It shapes itself around the shoulders and upper arms by its construction.
The straight and rolled boat neckline is in line with the garter on the lower part of the bodice. It is knit top-down and has faux side seams.
The cap-sleeves are created by the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Myers, (http://www.ravelry.com/people/SusieM).
