XENIA by Victoria Maria
Xenia features a high-low hem, a slightly A-line shape and a small lace pattern in the upper back. Together with the boat neck and the 3/4-length sleeves this gives Xenia its modern and clean look. It is knit in the round from the bottom up. After the ribbing short rows are knit to form the hemline. At the underarm it is devided into front and back. The boat neckline is also formed with short rows. The shoulders are closed with a 3-needle bind off. Then stitches are picked up around the armhole and the sleeves are worked top-down with short row sleeve caps.
