A gorgeous, unusual piece that seems to concentrate attention on the bust, slim the waist, and elongate your arms all at once. If these features interest you, then take Mills's cautions below with a grain of salt-- it's easier than it seems:
"Each half of the body worked in one piece from side to side, beginning at the sleeve cuff and ending at center back where the live stitches are grafted together. The last row worked on both halves is a WS Garter Stitch row that forms a purl ridge on the RS of the fabric. The Kitchener grafting row is worked from the RS, and fills in the missing knit row between the purl rows at the end of each half so the Garter Stitch pattern appears continuous across the back."
Gauge is given over garter stitch. This design is from Nashua Handknits Book 41, Champlain.
