Cleo is a fabulous, versatile garment that can be worn in a variety of ways – as a skirt; as a poncho (with the ribbing making the roll neck), or as a “boob-tube” dress (accessorised with a belt). Cleo is really interesting to make as it includes several techniques such as circular knitting, ribbing, cabling and short row shaping. With only one seam to finish and the border integrated into each row, Cleo is easy to finish. She can also be worn with Duchess, Breeze or Bonnie as a complimentary two-piece.
