Serene is a pleasure to knit and wear. The design is softly shaped to be both flattering & comfortable.

The body is worked from the bottom up with optional short row bust shaping. Sleeves are picked up from the armholes with the sleeve caps shaped using short rows, then worked to the long, flared cuffs. Accompanying this design is a full chapter on short row techniques.

The original yarn used for Serene has been discontinued so I’ve listed some possible substitutions. Be sure to check your gauge when choosing a different yarn. Serene would look as lovely in many merino or merino blend yarns as she does in the original Mission Falls 136 Superwash.

Errata: There is an error in the instructions at the beginning of the waist ribbing, for the two largest sizes. That section of the instruction is changed to read:

Ribbed waist
