Our original Modern Wrapper was a big hit, but several knitters asked for a similar style without the mohair component. To achieve the requisite lightness of being without the mohair haze to fill in the gaps, we shifted to a finer fabric, mixing (or matching) two strands of lace-weight yarn. We’ve also slimmed the silhouette and added a bit more precision to the fit by grading the design in three relaxed sizes.
This garment is designed with 16–22"/40–56cm of ease. When choosing which size to knit, we suggest you refer to the schematic for the shoulder width and the upper sleeve width.
