Product description

“The easy fit of this garment has flattering shaping in two areas; the curved hemline giving the back more coverage and the subtle widening of the body so the cable pattern flows outwards from waist to shoulders. This cocoon top is one that was high on my to-design list for very selfish reasons. Its clean, modern shape and minimal cable detail fits my style perfectly. I love working with reverse stockinette for a more textural feel and the exposed seams give it an additional interesting detail.” – Julie Hoover

    27 September 2013: (Version 2.1):

    Under SPECIAL TECHNIQUES, the directional Invisible Increase instructions have been slightly modified to make a more “invisible” appearance on the RS of the fabric, as follows: Inv-R (Invisible Increase Right): Place the right leg of the stitch below first stitch on L needle onto L needle and knit it (creating one new stitch on R needle – no stitches have been worked from L needle yet), then knit the first stitch on L needle. (1 stitch increased; leans right) (Modified for this pattern) Inv-L (Invisible Increase Left): Knit one stitch from L needle, now place the left leg of the stitch in the row below the stitch just worked on L needle. Knit the lifted stitch through the back loop (because it is mounted on the L needle in the opposite-than-normal orientation) keeping it from being twisted. (1 stitch increased; leans left; modified for this pattern)


    30 October 2013: (Version 3.0):

    Typo on Page 5, under BACK / Shape Hemline has been corrected as follows: “Short Row 2 (WS): Work in reverse stockinette stitch to marker 4, slip marker, work Row 2 of Chart B to marker 3, slip marker, work in reverse stockinette stitch to marker 2, slip marker, work Row 2 of Chart A to marker 1, slip marker, work in reverse stockinette stitch to last (4, 6, 8, 6, 8) stitches, turn and YO;”
