A very fast knit!

This design features a stunning dropped stitch pattern on the hemline, cuffs and yoke edging creating an intertwined stitch look that is easy to produce and looks fabulous and intricate at the same time.

La Belle ~ Long Version ~ sits at hip level with long, deep raglan sleeves.The Yoke design feature sits comfortably at the tip of the shoulders. Included on the yoke is the polo collar, instead, the collar can be turned into a snood for total cold weather cosiness.

Worked with 2 strands of chunky weight yarn and large needles produces an ultra soft, comfortable, snuggly and pliable fabric which feels like home!

La Belle is worked flat from the bottom up with side seams. The entire garment uses double strands of Chunky weighted yarn throughout and worked on size 12mm Needles. A good quality low pill acrylic was used for the vibrant colour but will work just as well in a wool mix.

Please Note the size of needles used which are 12mm easily found in our stores in South Africa. The drop down choice does not feature this size which is between a US15/US17. IF using a 10mm then choose the next size up and test the gauge supplied.
