Sweet Nothings Mock Wrap
Like a warm hug on a new spring day, this top is a mock wrap that flatters in all the right places. The ruching hides many flaws, as well as adding to the warmth and texture of this garment.
Knit in Alpaca Cloud, this lightweight beauty can go to work over a skirt or stay at home, layered over a favorite pair of jeans. All pieces are knit flat, and then gathered before seaming. Slip the first stitch of each row purlwise to create a neat selvedge for seaming.
If you are in between sizes, or prefer more ease, choose the larger size and customize your fit when gathering the pieces. As this yarn doesn’t have a lot of stretch to it, make sure you cast on and bind off loosely.
This pattern utilizes very unique construction techniques. Please read through each step carefully and refer to the schematics to avoid confusion.
