Designer Knitting Pattern
This designer knitting pattern uses a cashmere blend offering amazing elasticity. It is written with just the right amount of negative ease to provide a comfortable and flattering fit. It’s worked from the bottom up in two-by-two ribbing featuring a panel of beautiful lace ribs that runs the full-length hem to neck, front and back. So, working every row offers just the right amount of interest. The vents at the hips, shaping at the underarm and short rows on the shoulders add full-fashioned details.

This yarn is remarkable and everyone who uses it falls in love. Between the blend of fibers and the construction of the yarn the result is extremely elastic and almost guarantees flawless gauge as you work. The finished fabric provides a nice combination of stitch definition and a subtle textured surface that feels so soft on your skin. It works nicely on a range of needle sizes, so you may have found your new best friend.
The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.
