Siri is a warm, scrumptious over layer that can be worn instead of a shawl, or a long scarf.
It is knitted in one piece, top down. Starting with the big polo neck, followed by cap sleeves (knitted in the contiguous sleeve method developed by Suzie Myers) and finished by a curved hemline. The ribbing of the sleeves is added afterwards.
The bodice comes in two shapes: narrow and A-line.
