With Neil, you have endless possibilities. Because the fabric is created by holding the yarn double, you can customize the ‘marly-ness’ to suit your style and esthetics. Go for graphic black & white or contrasting shades to achieve something bold and eye-catching, or keep it subtle with muted tone on tone colors.

CONSTRUCTION
Neil A. has contiguous saddle shoulder shaping and is knit seamlessly from the top down. Neil has a slight A-line shape; the narrowest part of the sweater falls a little above the natural waist. The sweater is designed to be worn with 7-10 cm / 2.75-4” of positive ease.

The pattern includes instructions for horizontal bust darts. The darts are optional; instructions for a sweater with and without darts are given.
