I liked the idea this would be a straight forward minimal sewing, minimal shaping knit – flowing and drapey, but with a touch of elegance and unique design at the neckline. I’m adding a little pin to close mine at the top and give my shape a sliming line.
As it turns out, this pieces looks lovely on Frances – the model and my good friend – as it has a nice casual ease, gentle flow and is wonderfully suitable for a busy mother of gorgeous toddler. So it was named for her, and lets face it – she rocked it!
This knit, while simple in design, will need developing set of skills for knit and purl, 3 needle bind off for the shoulders, picking up stitches, simple shaping like knitting and purling together, and making stitches too.
