Provence is a pretty summer top with flattering shaping at the waist and a line of pretty flower motifs on the center front and back. It is crocheted in four pices, with the front and back motif panels and two side panels worked separately and then sewn together. Then the upper bodice and shoulders are worked. The lower edging is the final touch. Provence uses Berroco's Corsica, which blends 90% cotton and 10% cashmere in a soft, cool, DK weight yarn. Written instructions and a chart are provided for working the flower motifs. This sweater was designed to be quite fitted, with 0-2" of ease. Finished chest measurements are 31 (33, 36.5, 40, 42.5, 46, 48.5, 52) with lengths of 27.5 (27.5, 28, 28.5, 29.5, 30, 30.5, 31). Provence can be hand washed and blocked flat. Designed by Alison Green.
