This sweater is intended to be worn with 2” (5cm) of
negative ease.

Inspired by Grace Kelly in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, this pullover combines modern clean lines with classic styling. It can be worn for a night on the town or maybe an evening of spying on those suspicious neighbors!

My project notes: This is the second design I created for the Silver Screen Knits collection. I was inspired by the close fit of Grace Kelly’s Paris dress and the low-cut neckline of the original, and I decided to translate that into a sleek, modern tee. The top is worked from the bottom up, in four pieces, then seamed. The overall fit is body conscious and the front and back necklines are a low scoop, which makes this top perfect for an evening out, yet it is work appropriate when worn under a jacket.
