--- Sanguine Gryphon is no longer offering this pattern, but it is now available here from the designer. Thank you for your patience! ----
This lovely design by Elizabeth Thomas is a meeting of ancient and modern in perfect harmony. It’s a light summer shell, elegant and current, yet subtly evokes the pleats and draped neckline of an ancient Greek chiton. A seamless knit in the round with minimal fuss, employing a raw silk yarn with excellent drape, and flattering to the figure. Sizing tips are included to help you adjust it for the perfect fit for your shape.
