  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This loose-fitting garment is knit sideways starting at the armhole with yarn over increases that shape the fabric and leave decorative holes. Two halves are seamed in the middle and the deep neckline is finished with a sleek stockinette stitch border. I knit this drapey shirt outside in the breezey winds of Banaue, Philippines. It resulted in a casual comfy layer ideal for featuring beautiful hand dyed yarns like A Verb for Keeping Warm Even Tinier Annapurna.
