Introducing Marie with her luxurious and versatile alpaca shawl collar! Wear it cozily upright, folded over in a deep v-neckline, or somewhere in-between. Worsted wool is paired with alpaca dk in this slim-fitting and shapely piece. Her bodice extends high-hip in length with ribbed trimming at the hems and collar. Worked bottom-up, the lower portion begins as one piece on circular needles until the start of the front neckline where it splits and each side is worked separately. A fun project – wearing Marie you’ll welcome the chilly weather. Can’t wait!
