Doodles shown here on model with 33” chest and 5’ 5” tall

Note from Yumiko Alexander: while I was designing this pattern, I had so much fun playing with textures using basic techniques - knit, purl, slip stitches, and eyelets.
To make this unique texture without being complicated, some sections are worked with one strand of yarn, and other sections are worked with two strands of yarn held together. This produces a fabric where some sections are light, delicate, and see-through, and other sections are textured and a bit thicker. Slip stitches make wavy, horizonal lines without using short rows.

Instructions include the following adjustments / options:

  • Sleeve opening depth adjustments
  • Sleeves length adjustments
  • Kimono/straight sleeves instead of gathered cuffs
  • Sleeveless option
