Short Description: Swanky Chic is a delicate wrap that is perfect for wearing over a dress on a warm summer night! The design features simple garter and eyelet sections in an interesting chevron pattern. Simple increases and decreases make up the shaping on each right side row. The stitch patterns are easy to memorize, yet there is variation which makes for a really enjoyable knitting project! Pairing two colors of single ply fingering weight and one color of mohair/ silk yarn, this design is light, airy, soft, and sweet! Knit up in The Farmers Daughter Fibers yarns; this design is perfect for speckled or semi solid hand dyed yarns!
