Notes

On US 2 knitted the entire bodice and sleeves. Inserted stripes (in linen stitch pattern) using various colorful yarns ( Dover by Prism and Purelife by Rowan 474 silt color). This garment reminds me sunset / sunrise in New Mexico. Beehive sts worked extremely well for this yarn because it was a little thin, but texture came out thicker and voluminous. Highly recommend to try it. You can find the tutorial on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=au5jgjREA34
