Sophistication and intrigue personified, Circe delivers on silhouette and shape like none other. The dolman sleeves, nipped waist and richly textured panels create flat-tering lines without overpowering the wearer.
Knitting Circe is an adventure and wearing her a delight. The polished and shapely garment can be dressed up or down, and looks just as chic combined with tattered old jeans as with something more ornate and festive.

Circe is a top-down sweater with dolman shaped sleeves. You will start by working two cabled strips that run from the neckline over the shoulders down the sleeves. Stitch-es are picked up from these strips and worked down using short rows to shape the shoulders. Once the upper front and back are finished, you will join them to work the lower body in the round.
For the lower sleeves, stitches are picked up from the sleeve edge, and worked in the round to the desired length.

The sweater is designed to fall at the upper hip with no ease. If you want to lengthen your sweater, choose a size with an upper hip measurement that is closer to your full hip circumference.
