Choose a pastel sheath or slip dress to wear under Tobita’s charming lace top to accentuate the delicacy of the allover bobble and leaf pattern. Knitting begins at the wider lower edge; gentle waist shaping moves up to the bodice, with a switch to smaller needles for a snugger fit to the shoulders. It’s trimmed with garter stitch at the lower edge, armholes and neck. The higher cotton content of Cotton Fine by Brown Sheep Co. ensures coolness; 20% wool ensures more resilience and give than pure cotton.
