Patternfish - Mendel - Designed by Carol Feller (Stolenstitches.com)

Mendel
Designed by:  Carol Feller for StolenStitches.com

Knit in Heritage (75% Superwash Merino Wool / 25% Nylon - 437 yds / 100 g)

"Simplicity and elegance are key in this understated top," says Feller. "Drama is created using an open draped neckline and ruched hemline and cuffs.  It's knit as a lightweight material from fingering weight yarn that has been knit with a loose gauge. This creates a flattering and stretchy material. Knit in the round from the bottom up, the ruches and hem are created as you knit. When the body is finished sleeves are picked up and knit down from the armhole, leaving you with minimal finishing when the knitting is done." How we love this, with its beautiful understanding of line and its understated elegance
