Gin and Tonic
I set out to design a wardrobe basic with this one. In color, design, and feel, I wanted Gin and Tonic to work with everything.
Kind of like the drink itself, which I find appropriate for almost any occasion :)
I have added details, but they are subtle and still read as classic and versatile enough for all sorts of outfits. Distinct cables line each side of the body, with tails that flow into the hem at bottom - and at the yoke, those tails open up to create the lines of the raglan seam. The overall texture is beautiful and delicate, and really very simple to work. Plus, a big, cozy cowl is always a bonus.
Seamless raglan construction is worked from the bottom up, so modifications are easy. Instructions for alternate necklines are included as well.
The sample is shown in Hayden DK, a beautiful yarn, especially in this gorgeous shade of subtly vareigated gray and cream called Heartwood. A suggested substitute yarn is shown below.
