A simple autumnal top designed to keep you toasty warm. The A line shaping created a comfy, flattering garment and fits comfortably over long sleeves. The gathered sleeve caps add a touch of whimsy. A simple broken garter pattern highlights the complementary yarn on the hems.

Construction Notes
Stammel is knit from the bottom up in one piece with short rows to shape the neckline. The texture at the hems highlights a brightly colored yarn. I used a touch of special handspun but have also swatched in several commercially available yarns.
