This dolman shape is Courtney’s favorite summer sweater style to knit, and the design also transitions well into a multi-seasonal layering piece. The sweater is worked in the round from the bottom up, and shaped with increases at the sides – think of it as a very long, drawn out raglan. This makes modifications very easy, as you can add length, work more or fewer increases, or incorporate patterning into the body.
the subtle patterning on the yoke is created using knits and purls to create large, geometric triangle shapes. As an all over repeat, the triangles appear as an all-over texture that frames the face beautifully. Otter Creek is easy to knit, flattering on a wide variety of body types, and simple to customize.
LEah McGlone’s comfortable tunic is a great weekend staple designed to look as good with with jeans as it does with a pair of classic trousers. The interesting texture play between the body and the sleeves is created using knit/purl stripes that mirror one another, giving the otherwise simple garment unique visual texture.
The A-Line shape is flattering on all manner of body shapes, and the longer tunic length provides more coverage for those with pear shapes.
