The top is made of low stretch knit jersey in charcoal.
The bib has been knitted separately (triple cable knit), following a pattern published in Burda magazine 12/2011 (the leather and wool bag). I have, in fact, used that pattern over and over again, including for a bag which has (sadly) never been finished.
I used satin bias binding for the neckline and a couple of nickel matt sequins for the cord and the neck.
The top has a butterfly shape and the shoulder line is in fact the fold of the fabric. I therefore only needed to use one stitch on each side of the top.
Happy to provide a sketch of my innovative pattern.
