Siesta is a summer top that combines classic simplicity with an elegant twist. Created from Debbie Bliss ‘Prima’ the 80% bamboo content gives a smooth silky feel to the top with wonderful drape while the addition of wool give a bit more spring.
Knit from the top down with raglan shoulder shaping, there is smooth transition between cables from the neck line where they are small and delicate, a chunkier cable at the bustline leading finally to two cables slowly traveling outwards to each side until you reach the bottom of the piece.
The sides of the piece are also gently shaped at the waist to show off your curves. All edgings are finished using applied I-cord for a smooth and subtle finish.
Enjoy this fast and fun knit.
