Get comfortable in an oversized but polished looking top knit in Summer Silk. Maccabeau's yoke is knit in a latticework pattern following a chart. It is a rectangle worked from sleeve to sleeve with a slit for the neck. Once it is complete, stitches are picked up at the bottom of the yoke front and back and worked downward in the round in stockinette stitch. Stitches are picked up and worked in rib around the neck opening. This sweater uses Summer Silk, a DK-weight yarn that blends silk, cotton, and nylon. Finished chest measurements are 34 (37, 40, 43.5, 46, 50, 53)" with finished back lengths of 27.25 (27.5, 27.75, 28, 28.5, 28.5, 29.25)". The sweater can be hand washed and dried flat. Designed by Amy Christoffers.
