Inspired by the ebb and flow of the salt water marshes of Cape Cod near where my grandparents lived, this sleeveless shell is worked in Classic Elite’s Firefly. The linen makes it breath beautifully during summer months and the slight sheen of the yarn gives it a feminine look. You’ll knit this sleeveless shell surprisingly fast as, aside from the front cabled panel, the whole shirt is stockinette stitch.
An empire waist helps this shell flatter any figure. Sizes small, medium and large are given with a finished size of 37, 39 and 41 inch (94, 99, 104 cm) at the bust and 33, 35, and 37 inch (84, 89, 94 cm) at the rib cage.
The Cable pattern is charted and written out. This would make a great project for someone still unsure of their cabling abilities because there is only one large cable with which to gain confidence and the rest is stockinette.
