Dalriada is a great transitional-weather piece that’s figure flattering to boot. The long vertical lines formed by the Ornamental Rib panels, combined with the deep V-neckline, slim and lengthen the body. The single button closure and empire waist panel draw attention to the narrow part of the torso under the bust, a very flattering choice for many shapes. To help Dalriada best flatter your figure, before knitting compare your own measurements against the schematic to identify whether you might need to raise or lower the horizontal band. It should fall a couple of inches below your bust. Bijou Basin Ranch Bijou Spun Sport is a soft, lofty, and completely luscious 100% yak yarn. I recommend it for its lighter-than-air feel and lovely softness and warmth. Should you desire to substitute yarn, please choose one that has little drape. You’ll need approximately 1108 (1226, 1311, 1422, 1530, 1660, 1787, 2011, 2211, 2394) yds/1014 (1121, 1199, 1301, 1399, 1518, 1634, 1840, 2022, 2190) m.
