Ibisco is a bit dressier than my usual designs, but this yarn called for something special. The soft hand, hint of sheen and subtle haze needed to be played with. So this is my date sweater. Dolman sleeved, with an easy body skimming fit and a neckline that gives a hint of collarbone without being too deep or wide, it's sexy and feminine while remaining easy to wear.
I played with the traditional Dolman, creating sleeves with a fitted wrist and less "batwing" than usual. Subtle shaping at the bust tailors them in just a bit, and since the sweater is knit bottom up in the round, you can easily adjust length or shaping. The lace is simple and delicate and has a bit of texture, plus it allows you a peek of tank underneath if you feel daring. The star of the sweater is the fabric, so I've made sure there is lots of stockinette. Soft, light, with gorgeous drape. It really just begs for big jewelry and a cocktail.
Sample is in Ball and Skein Lyra. Other yarns are suggested substitutes.
