Room to layer. Room to move. Classic, gorgeous, flattering. Modern sleeves. Timeless style.
Wear Azimuth over your favorite dress. With white capris. With jeans. Layered over your favorite stripes.
Texture so rich and gorgeous that it shines, even in soft black wool. Azimuth is knit top-down with a ballet-style neckline and contiguous set-in sleeves that are knit as you go. No seaming! The delicious cable design is easily memorized and makes for nice repetition – especially once you pass the sleeve divide.
32 (34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52)” bust with 3-4″ positive ease
Finished measurements: Approximately 35 (38, 40, 44, 45, 46, 48, 52, 56)” at bust
Sleeve at widest point 11.8 (12, 12.5, 13.3, 13.6, 14, 15, 17, 18)”
NOTE about fit: The front cables affect the ease and because of this, ease may vary slightly based on the tension of the cables and yarn choice. The design is intended to fit with several inches of positive ease; choose either the size for your bust (which will result in 3-4″ of positive ease) – OR – select the finished measurement for bust and sleeve that gives you the ease you prefer.
