Romantic, delicate and classic. The body is worked in two pieces, starting at center back. The stitch pattern is a 4 row repeat. The cuffs and border band are worked sideways and sewn in place. The sample shown is in Plymouth Yarn’s Platinum (50% rayon, 30% nylon, 20% angora). Once you wrap it around yourself, you’ll never want to take it off.

You will also need a tapestry needle, stitch holders, stitch markers and some scrap yarn for provisional cast-on.
