Davis is a ‘make ‘n wear’ type of garment, a quick and simple spring & summer top. Plain old stocking stitch is easy on the brain and looks great in Quince & Co Kestrel. The edges don’t roll and the drape is to die for. Davis is wider than most with very fitted sleeves to balance its boxy shape. An exposed shoulder seam makes for a great little detail. The sizing is quite roomy and linen has a lot of drape, so you can get away with making a smaller size.
Davis is knitted in the round from the bottom up. The shoulders are shaped with short rows and joined using a three-needle bind off. The sleeve stitches are picked up and knitted in the round.
