I actually knit this in the summer of 2011, and made a few more changes in the fall, but I’m really happy with the results. it’ s knit in 100% mulberry silk and feels amazing on.
At the time, we took some test shots, even though I knew I was going to redo the back later on. It has about 1″ positive ease on me, and I recommend a little bit of ease, so that the silk can drape. For those that think a drawstring i-cord is way too much i-cord, i bet you could easily crochet chain a drawstring instead- it would be much faster.
I had a hard time imagining summer knitting already until I saw the issue preview- now I’m excited about summer knitting!
