Atlas Cove is a super simple knit with a few very special details to turn this knit from something nice to WOW!

Let’s start from the top down, since that’s how Atlas Cove is knit. But it’s not your typical raglan or yoke. This baby is knit using the Contiguous Method. Don’t know what that is? Don’t worry. Knitting it is a breeze. But here’s the kicker--it fits like a set-in sleeve, aka the best looking fit there is.

And that’s just the start.

Next, there’s some stellar shaping to flatter your excellent figure, crowned with a beautiful (and super easy) slipped stitch motif at the waist and hem to give us all that hourglass shape.

Then there’s the adorable (and comfortable) set-in pockets… in the contrast color.

It all ties together in a stunning package that you’ll want to wear again and again.
