This experienced level garment by Bristol Ivy has wonderful shaping: raglan sleeves, A-Line flare from bust-line down to the base, and longer in back than in front. A truly unique construction. The lace patterns is charted, and once the back and sleeves are knit to the armholes the stitches are then placed on holders, at that point you start the yoke and front, which are knit at the same time, by picking up stitches along the side of the back and using the live stitches on the holders. Finished chest measurements are 33.5" (37, 39, 42.5, 45, 48, 52, 56).
