Silk Gray is an uncomplicated friend for a casual look. Absolutely non-itchy - this goes with anything and can be worn over a tank top, summer dress or a T-shirt. Knit up in a luxurious bourette silk blend, the material is shimmering and at the same time interestingly tweedy. The sweater has small 1x1 rib details around all edges. The neck is wide and flattering with a small rib detail. I left the bottom rib open in the sides, but that’s optional of course.

Size: Depending on amount of ease this will fit sizes from 36-40”. Small sizes will get an oversized sweater; larger sizes a closer fitted version.

Yarn: I used 4 skeins of BC garn Granite (860m/940yrd): in light gray. This yarn can be substituted by any fingering or DK weight silk/wool or silk/merino blend that will give you an even, yet airy fabric at this gauge.

Yardage: about 900 m/1000 yards. I had almost nothing left to finish, make sure there is more in your LYS if you want to gamble! Also – if you’re knitting a longer version you’ll need more yarn.
Needles: US 2.5 – 3.0 mm for the ribbing and US 6 – 4.0 mm needles for the body, or size needed to obtain gauge, tapestry needle, stitch markers.
