This is a beautifully elegant jacket top, finished with small pearl buttons and designed to be worn next to the skin, in luxurious soft Blacker Swan yarn. The body design is in a light but dense 4-row moss stitch variant called Rose Stitch, in a darker shade and the yoke and set-in ¾ sleeves are in twisted stocking stitch in a paler shade. The V-necked jacket is fitted, with short-row shaped darts into which the stylish inverted pleats of the peplum border merge, to complete the graceful image.
Milan was originally published in Knitting Magazine 119, September 2013.
