Robin says; "The beguiling décolleté neckline on this sleeveless top is accentuated by an interesting collar. The garter stitch collar is worked as a separate piece and is twisted at the center front before being sewn to the garment, in a fluent curve reflecting its contoured shape. Worked in a delightfully draping blend of silk and alpaca, the textured eyelet panel stands out against the flowing stockinette background."
