Veneta Shell is a versatile layering top. Its highly textured surface gives its sculptural appeal. The overall 4-st cable is easy to memorize and can be done without a cable needle. Knitted from the bottom up in the round, the only finishing required is the shoulder three-needle bind-off.

Measurements are given both in cm and inches. Both written and charted directions are given for the stitch pattern.
