Description

Amélie is worked from the bottom up in one piece, uniting the sleeves and body at underarm and working the yoke using a Simultaneous Set In Sleeve construction.

This seamless sleeve construction mimics a regular set in sleeve but the sleeve cap shaping is worked at the same time as the body. Very clever and lots of fun to knit!

I wanted this to be a vintage-like and feminine piece without too much fussiness so these are some of the other elements that I chose to include: waist shaping formed using darts on the front and back, a simple V-shaped lace bib, gently gathered sleeve caps, keyhole shaping at the back neck and a neckline finished off with some I-cord that forms a pretty bow in the back.

The yarn quantities below are for the short-sleeved version. A further 33% (or 1 skein of substitute) is required for the long-sleeved version.

Shown in Fiber Company Canopy. A suggested substitute yarn is shown below.
