The beautiful burette silk used for this shirt, it belongs to one of the best dyers of Italian yarn. I have known Elbert Espeleta, of Chiaroscuro Dye Lab, during a dye course organized by the Association SferruzziAMO to which I belong. Elbert gave me this beautiful silk, I hope to honor this wonderful yarn. Astoria is a top-down circular yoke sweater. After finishing the neck ribbing some short-rows are worked back and forth to create a higher back neck and then the round-yoke is worked top down with lace pattern band to sleeve separation. Sleeve stitches are placed on waste yarn to work the body top down. Sleeve stitches are then picked up again to work the sleeves top down in rounds.
