I want to knit a washable, sleeveless shell, but not of cotton. I just finished one in cotton, and it lacks drape and isn't form fitting enough.

Which yarn type do you recommend? viscose and nylon is what my ready wear is, but it is such a fine gauge. I think that wouldl be difficult to knit as fishing line.

Do you have a pattern recommendation? I have knitted socks, hats and sweaters. I am able to read patterns.
