A modern handknitted garment made from an age old fibre.

The back and front of this garment are knitted as one piece with a perpendicular grain transition at the bust. This clever detail creates a flattering bustline for all body types with an interesting neck detail that rolls and reveals the contrasting garter stitch. The sleeves are sewn to align with the bust seam and a single button is used to complete this garment.

Please note, as this piece was designed for linen, the sizing tends to smaller should you choose to knit it using another yarn.

Notes re Gauge
The gauge listed in the pattern is for UNWASHED SWATCH.
I have reswatched this again with the following results:

Raw, unwashed sample:
26 - 28st + 44-6 rows / 10cm

Washed Sample:
32-33st + 42-44 rows/10cm

Now, I KNOW the gauge can be confusing - this linen gives me a different gauge EVERYTIME I use it! TRUE. By its nature it varies with heat, humidity, etc.

Thirteen Sizes provided in the pattern.
