Ayana PDF

$7.00 Each

Ayana is an easygoing but flattering V-neck sweater with waving rib panels to create a curvy impression. It is knit in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed together. The bottoms of all pieces are worked with faced hems. This keeps the visual interest of the ribbing while mitigating its tendency to pull in. Vertical darts are used for waist and bust shaping. On the front, the darts are worked into the sides of the waving rib panels. The waving rib continues at the top of the back neck. With minor alterations, Ayana can flatter a variety of body types. As written, the V neckline and ribbed hem trim make Ayana visually balanced; the waving rib panels do a nice job of narrowing a larger bust.
