Construction

  • This garment is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up, then sewn together. The neckband is picked up and worked circularly after garment assembly.
  • The contrasting color columns are worked using a crochet hook once the pieces are finished; no intarsia knitting is required.
  • Three versions are provided: a Shaped Hip Length version (Version I) and a Shaped Cropped Length version (Version II), both with neck and bust darts and slightly shorter sleeves, and a Classic version that is hip length with broader shoulders, longer sleeves, and no neck or bust shaping (Version III).
