    With the competition date looming I was in need of a quick knit but one that looked impressive. I spotted this yarn and pattern in my nearest wool shop which is an hour away.
    I was a little apprehensive about how the yarn would knit up using large needles on the thin parts. The yarn is available in many lovely shades. I plan on wearing the top over a camisole for our SWI Christmas lunch.
    I was delighted with the speed it grew and the lace effect, and so were the judges. 2nd place awarded.

    Needles & Hooks

    • Circular 6.00mm (US 10) 60cm


    • Tapestry Needle


    To Fit Bust: 36-38"

    Notes: I knit this top exactly as the pattern. It has some shaping and the cowl neckline is very flatttering.
