Lead designer: Elizabeth Doherty

With its modern, graceful sihouette, Calyx is that versatile sweater you’ll want to live in. Its slightly boxy shape and three-quarter length sleeves pair effortlessly with jeans, and work equally well with dresses and skirts.

19 sts and 30 rows = 4" [10 cm] in stockinette,
with both yarns held together, on US 7 [4.5 mm] needles, after blocking.


Calyx is knit from the bottom up, with short row shaping at the shoulders to ensure a fabulous fit. A simple lace panel—reminiscent of the sepals that hold a flower’s petals—takes center stage on the stockinette background. New shoots of lace form ingenious saddle shoulders that are seamlessly joined to the body with a three-needle bind off. Drop shoulder sleeves, picked up and worked from the armholes down, carry the lace panels to the clean I-cord cuffs. The ribbed neckline, with a lateral braid accent, adds the final design element, as well as structural stability.

A truly remarkable fabric is achieved by holding two lightweight yarns together throughout the construction. The blend of linen, silk, and just a hint of wool, make this the perfect trans-seasonal sweater!
