Shakerag Top

April 2018
Light Fingering ?
20 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches
in stockinette stitch with yarn doubled and larger needles

It’s a striped fabric made from exactly one yarn. The subtlety and cleverness of this is something we really love. Using two strands of Jade Sapphire Sylph, we make the stripes first with one strand, then two strands carried together.

The shape is as elemental as imaginable—it is worked from the bottom up, in the round, until dividing to work the top part back and forth. There is plenty of ease in this pullover, and drape.
