Notes: Azimuth is knit seamlessly from the bottom up, starting with a cropped 1x1 ribbing that deepens into a brioche stitch. The vertical ridges of the brioche are crossed by horizontal lines of a semi-transparent eyelet pattern in a contrasting colour. At the underarm, front and back are divided and knit flat. The v-neck has a brioche border with left and right slanting decreases shaping the neckline. The armholes are bordered by an i-cord edge, the neck is finished with an i-cord cast-off and the shoulders are joined with kitchener stitch or three-needle cast-off. Instructions are given for two lengths: a relaxed shoulder-to-hip version and a cropped shoulder-to-waist version.
