Sometimes a design is so effortlessly elegant that it feels discovered rather than devised. Julie Hoover’s Rigby is such a garment, so dazzling in its simplicity we can’t believe we’ve been without it all this time! An expert at thoughtful construction and subtle details, Julie has us knit in the round from hem to underarms, then work flat up to the shoulder seams, finishing the edges with delicate rows of knits and purls for a versatile garment full of breezy sophistication. Our go-to yarn for understated knits, the incredibly soft Simply Camel creates a gorgeous fabric with a beautiful drape and a desert glow… Both timely and timeless!
22 stitches and 34 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch on largest needles
NOTE: Due to the elastic nature of the Simply Camel, we recommend allowing your gauge swatch to “relax” for 72 hours after washing and blocking to get the most accurate row gauge results.
