Elspeth is feminine without fuss—the perfect layer for the breezy days of spring and summer.

Worked flat in one piece, Elspeth is knit at a looser gauge in seed stitch and incorporates neck and back shaping to show off Shine Sport’s silky drape. Edgings are crocheted directly onto the garment after knitting is complete and armholes are seamed.

Eminently practical and just plain pretty--who doesn’t need more of that?
