Lovely Layers

Roxborough Dolman by Courtney Kelley,
Kelbourne Woolens Perennial, colors 32 Lead, 520 Raspberry

Great for layering under fall jackets, the Roxborough Dolman by Courtney Kelley is a striking knit top that looks fantastic with your favorite pair of jeans.

The straightforward top is knit in the round from the bottom up, then divided at the underarm & worked back & forth. It is finished by binding off the shoulders using a three-needle bind-off, then picking up the neck to finish working in the round.

Easily transitioning the seasons, the Roxborough is knit in Kelbourne Woolens Perennial, a soft blend of 60% superwash Merino wool, 25% Suri alpaca & 15% nylon. The yarn has a lovely, comfortable drape with a fingering weight gauge.

Our favorite part about this project is that it uses only 3-4 skeins of Kelbourne Woolens Perennial to knit the entire pullover!
