Oh *Elizabeth* – what a thrill! The abundant cowl collar of this piece establishes it as a regal standout. Garter trimmed *flame chevron* lace (easily done) is inserted in a deep arc around the neckline framing the face in casual elegance. A shapely bodice, worn plain or belted, and bracelet-length sleeves add to its styling. This piece is slim-fitting and extends mid-hip in length with garter trimming at the hems. Worked bottom-up, the lower portion begins as one piece on circular needles, until the start of the front neckline where it splits and each side is worked separately. You’ll find this project works up quickly – a pleasure to both make and wear. Enjoy!
