Alcomar is worked from the top down using the contiguous method, with short-row shoulder and neckline shaping. Body shaping is achieved with sets of paired decreases and increases. The top front and back are worked flat to the underarm, where they are joined to be worked in the round. A loose gauge creates an extra airy knitted fabric for an especially drapey sweater that is both casual and flirty.
