The body and sleeves are joined at the armhole and continued with raglan shaping. The front neck is worked with short-row shaping and the fold-over collar is worked in K1, P1 rib.

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Road to China Light by Fibre Co. (65% Alpaca / 15% Silk / 10% Cashmere goat, /10% Camel; 50g/159 yds): 8 (9, 10, 11) Skeins. Shown in Moonstone. Beautiful sheen in jewel tones. This decadent yarn is the ultimate in drape, shine, and softness.
ALTERNATE YARN: Baby Alpaca by Blue Sky Fibers (100% baby alpaca; 50g/110 yds): 12 (13, 15, 16) Skeins. This delightfully soft yarn rivals the hand of Road to China Light but without the distinct sheen of silk. Also a luxurious yarn with amazing drape. PRE-ORDER now available in all colors in the Blue Sky Fibers catalog. Please allow at least 7 business days for your Pre-Order to arrive at your location.
ALTERNATE YARN: Caprino by Malabrigo (80% Super Fine Merino Wool / 20% Cashmere: 50g/159yds): 8 (9, 10, 11) Skeins.

For best results when working with hand dyed yarns we strongly suggest alternating skeins of the same color throughout your project.
