Knit and Tonic
Here’s a sleeveless shell with some easy-but-fancy dart action that you can knit in about three days that’ll show off whatever there is to show.
And if you’re not into the old nudie thing, wear a camisole underneath or alter the neckline depth (I’ll tell you how). But if you do, just be sure you use some yarn that has a bit of shimmer and glimmer and sizzle.
….Because, honestly, it’s all about the sizzle.
