Add a quick layer to your wardrobe with Rhody! Knit in a light-worsted yarn with minimal yardage, you’ll have your piece finished in no time. Rhody is a seamless Bolero with an all-over eyelet stitch pattern with purl stitch accents. The patterns starts with the upper back, which is put on hold after it’s knit to the underarm. Fronts are picked up from the cast-on edge and knit to the same length. The fronts and back are joined when the underarms are cast on, and the remainder of the body is knit down with shaping at the front opening. Stitches are left live at the bottom hem after completing the body, and additional stitches are picked up around the neckline to knit the ribbed band to finish the edges. Additional stitches are picked up around each armhole, and sleeves are shaped seamlessly with short rows in the same eyelet stitch pattern. Choose a size based on the shoulder and body back width. Double the back width to compare to bust measurements for reference.
