Lacey with a simple construction this is a great all-purpose garment. You can spice it up and use a bold summer yarn like King Cole Giza 4ply a gorgeous mercerised cotton which has all the shine and drape you could want for a summer garment. Or you could use the specified King Cole Drifter 4ply that this garment is knitted in for the pattern. It is a soft, marled yarn with a lovely mixture of cotton/acrylic/wool for a snuggly knitted fabric. Whichever you choose I am already jealous of you.
