The basic shape (back, fronts and sleeve) was created in Standard Garment Styling and tweaked in Original Pattern Drafting.
By “knit manually”, I mean using Interactive Knitting *without the machine*, i.e. using the UP arrow tool.
Inspiration: I have always been intrigued by dressmaker and tailoring details. This is inspired by a basic dressmaker shape, modified to some extent.

Knitted garments will also require different construction methods. (See below: Shape).
