Cleo is cast on at the neckline and worked flat for 16 rows, and then joined and worked in the round to the hemline. Ribbed trim and a two-button closure frame the garment. Dropped yarnovers add texture and visual interest to the stockinette stitch body. A moderate A-line shape makes this a great choice for any body type.

I’ve chosen bright summery colors of Vickie Howell’s Rock (40% SOYSILK®, 30% Fine Wool 30% Hemp) for this version, but Cleo would look equally great worked up in Rock shades: Joan[black], Trent [gray], and Jack [white].
