Four sweaters (and a vest option!) show off the qualities of Alpaca Heather: softness; warmth without bulk; round, 3-ply twist to flatter textured stitches as well as stockinette; beautifully heathered undyed colors; and a coordinated palette of saturated dyed colors that retain the subtlety of the underlying heathered tones.
This casual tunic has minimal shaping and an easy knit-purl texture -- a great combination for easy knitting and easy wearing. The saddle shoulders and a variation in the stitch pattern around the neck add thoughtful details that make this design extra special.
