Spice Caravan Robe

The Spice Caravan Robe evokes the fantasy of exotic locales and the rich, extravagant costumes of distant lands. Generously oversized, it will fit almost everyone, so add some spice to your wardrobe!

The robe is worked by knitting front and back panels, then joining them at the shoulders. Front bands are picked up and knitted, and front band facings are sewn back. Side edgings are also picked up and knitted, then joined with 3-needle bind off. Sleeves are worked in the round from the shoulder to cuff.

NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Advanced Beginner or Intermediate knitters.
