Pattern Details

Sebastian. Do I stand there? I never had a brother; Nor can there be that deity in my nature, Of here and every where. I had a sister, Whom the blind waves and surges have devour’d. Of charity, what kin are you to me? What countryman? what name? what parentage? Viola. Of Messaline: Sebastian was my father; Such a Sebastian was my brother too, So went he suited to his watery tomb… Sebastian. …Were you a woman, as the rest goes even, I should my tears let fall upon your cheek, And say ‘Thrice-welcome, drowned Viola!’ --Twelfth Night, Act V, Scene 1 A seamed, drapey, oversized sweater with asymmetrical cable panels on the front. Sample is 46” size, shown on a 38” bust for 8” of positive ease.
