This is the perfect garment to add a touch of evening-night-out elegance. It begins with a cable panel at the center back, which is worked with two strands of yarn held together, then stitches are picked up along the sides of the panel and the sleeves are worked (with a single strand of yarn) to the cuffs. A stretchy picot bindo-off around the cuffs and body opening provides a feminine edge with a comfy fit.
