This is a gorgeous easy summer knit, I love the contrasting stitch patterns against the stocking stitch for the main body. The designer has used King Cole Cottonsoft DK and the drape of the yarn has created a beautiful shape to the garment. It is also perfect fibre for the summer, breathable and light - perfect for layering. I think that this pattern would also be magnificent in King Cole Finesse DK a cotton/silk blend that is divine to knit with and wear.
You will also need 3.75mm and 4mm knitting needles for this pattern.
