Notes: Grès is knit in pieces and then seamed. Back and sleeves are shaped conventionally, with armhole and sleeve cap shaping, ending with a saddle. Front is worked with large wings on either side, worked by first increasing out to a large number of stitches on the bias, and then decreasing back down to a point. Afterthought pockets are added when
wings are at their widest point. The top edge of the wings are seamed to the side edges of the back when pieces are complete, which creates the drape in the body.
