“Madame Librarian” is knit from the top down in a slipped stitch plaid pattern. You cast on for the back and work to the underarm, then pick up stitches and work the fronts individually. Eventually you join the neckline, and once you reach the underarm, join the fronts and back to work in the round for the rest of the body. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole and shaped using short rows.

The color pattern is charted only.

It is designed to fit with 1”/2.5cm of negative ease at the bust, no ease at the waist, and 1”/2.5cm of negative ease at the hips.

Modeled garment is the 34” shown on a 33” high bust and a 34.5” full bust.
