Blue Sky Fibers Smock Top
Blue Sky Alpacas' Metalico yarn brings sheen and incredible drape to the elegant Smock Top. Worked all in one piece, the Smock Top is a tunic-length pullover with drop sleeves and a boat neck. The stockinette body is accented by lace openwork at the yoke, sleeves and again at the hem. The smocked lace stitch is simple enough for an advanced beginner to knit, but makes a major visual impact.
