Dirty Martini is a modern take on the lace cardigan - delicate, but not too girly. It began as my nod to the classic Chanel jacket but changed a little along the way. Cozy borders in a darker color add weight to the lighter, open body, and accentuate the difference between lace and ribbing. A Peter Pan collar gets a makeover with a deep rounded back and tabs shaped to appear only at front and then disappear. It's extra cozy in soft, round Primo Aran. The fabric is substantial and warm with deep, ribbed cuffs and a hem knit on bigger needles to really accentuate the cozy feel.
It's designed to be worn open and loose, so choose the size that gives you 2-3" of positive ease based on your actual bust size. If you're between sizes I suggest choosing the smaller. It can be worn with a more fitted silhouette, and the lace could grow a bit with wear. I don't suggest negative ease, as the lace will stretch when worn.
Sample is in Plucky Primo Aran. Other listed yarns are suggested substitutues
