Hold Me Close Top
Delicate and comforting, just like a sincere hug, this heartwarmer is a lovely addition to in-between season wardrobes. It can be worn on its own as a top or layered over dresses, t-shirts and camisoles as a light cardigan.
The top is worked at a DK weight gauge, and is very satisfying to knit. Stockinette and slipped stitches create flowy fabric that drapes beautifully. A tie at the bottom allows the wrap to perfectly hug your waist. An optional back strap supports the V-neck. Pattern contains both written instructions and charts.
Sizes listed are actual finished top measurements. For the fit shown, choose the size that fits your bust circumference with near 6”/15cm of positive ease and your waist exactly. If in doubt, stick to the waist measurements.
You can use two fingering weight yarns held together, OR a fingering weight yarn + lace weight mohair held together, OR dk/light worsted weight yarn in one strand. Sample sweater yarn, held together: Shibui Reed and Tweed Silk Cloud.
