Geometry is a little whimsical knit that uses very little yarn. It can be knit up quickly and is a versatile layering piece. You can layer it with a camisole, a sundress or whatever you want. Tips are given on how to lengthen it if cropped length is not your thing. Due to its modular seamless construction it is easy to make it narrower or wider or alter the armhole circumference for your favorite fit.

This design comes with inclusive sizing. Measurements are given in both centimeters and inches.
