Basali

The delicate cocoon stitch flows naturally into the ribbing of this sweater. The ribbed body allows plenty of stretch for a comfortable fit and the delicate details add a little special touch. Knit in the round from the bottom up, the body is divided at the armhole and joined at the shoulder. Sleeves are worked from the top down.
