β€’ This pattern is worked seamlessly from the bottom up worked in Stockinette stitch with a lace detail. At the underarms, the garment is split in two parts, back and front, with the lace detail continuing up the front.
β€’ If substituting fiber, reduce or skip the shoulder short rows and work even until desired length. They are included to accommodate the unique drape characteristics of 100% linen.
β€’ See β€œInside the Self-Hemming Cast On” on the Knit Eco Chic blog for a video demonstration of the technique.
β€’ The β€œCustom Shaping Calculator” (also available on the Knit Eco Chic website) ensures you get your perfect fit. The calculator provides custom shaping directions for transitioning between the given sizes.
