rectangle top with a bit of structure
This sweater is worked in stockinette stitch in the round, with a bit of half linen stitch for structure.
Perfect for the beautiful, heavy drape that characterizes linen. The trendy, very wide shape works
well with both a dress and a jumpsuit.
You begin with two strips in half linen stitch, from which you pick up stitches on the edges. The
neck line is made by casting on stitches between the strips. The bottom part of the sweater in half
linen stitch makes a nice edging.
