Hi. I made this top by my own design. Hope you like it.
Posted on | July 25, 2007 | 27 Comments I posted a photo of this linen top to my flickr page and had a couple of people ask about the pattern so I thought I’d offer it here. It’s a good summer knitting project (no heavy wool here) and a good summer top to wear. The work is done from side to side and stretches open quite a bit after blocking. Finished Size: about 50” (127 cm) circumference, and 17” (43 cm) long, measured from shoulder to hem.
SIZES To fit bust measurement Extra-Small/Small 28-34” [71-86.5 cm] Medium 36-38” [91.5-96.5 cm] Large 40-42” [101.5-106.5 cm] Extra-Large 44-46” [112-117 cm] 2/3 Extra-Large 48-54” [122-137 cm] 4/5 Extra-Large 56-62” [142-157.5 cm] Finished bust Extra-Small/Small 37” [94 cm] Medium 41” [104 cm] Large 45” [114.5 cm] Extra-Large 49” [124.5 cm] 2/3 Extra-Large 57” [144.5 cm] 4/5 Extra-Large 65” [165 cm] MATERIALS Bernat® Satin (100 g/3.5 oz; 182 m/200 yds) Sizes XS/S ( M -L- XL -2/3XL- 4/5XL ) 04742 (Lagoon) 6 ( 7 -8- 9 -10- 11 ) balls Sizes 4.5 mm (U.S. 7) and 5 mm (U.S. 8) circular knitting needles 24" [61 cm] long or size needed to obtain gauge. GAUGE 18 sts and 24 rows = 4” [10 cm] with larger needle in stocking stitch.
Knotical is a breezy top that is knitted like a drop-shoulder tank, but looks like a cap-sleeved tee. The shape of this garment is created by using smaller needles and a tighter gauged stitch pattern to make the waistband and larger needles with a larger gauged stitch pattern for the upper part of the top. Once you get the knotted openwork stitch pattern down, there’s little more to do than knit up a big tube of fabric and seam the shoulders. There is no increasing or decreasing.
I wanted to knit something with color but I was (and still am) hesitant to try Fair Isle knitting. So I decided to knit with stripes. Stripes are the easiest way to add color to knitting.
Watching the sparce grid of the pergola become overrun with wisteria and roses was a sure sign of the hot summer days to come. This sweater is a delightfully quick project to welcome spring and to wear right through summer. I think if I found myself sitting under that pergola right now, I'd be sporting this top, cool beverage in hand, gazing up at the greenery! -Laura For the main color: 2 (2, 3) skeins of Madeline Tosh's Sport , 100% superwash merino wool. I used the color Silver Fox.
I wrote this as a basic pattern, as though it would be knitted in one color, but if you want a rainbow one like mine I'd recommend three lace repeats per color. (Red, orange, yellow, green, dark blue, purple. I know some people like to throw a light blue in there as well, that's up to you.) I yet again did not do gauge.
In celebration of my first post; free tanktops for all! I had my eye on Paton's silk bamboo for ages waiting to find a pattern to justify my spending money on more yarn.
Filati Handknitting 30, Model 10 Elastico hat and New Cotton top Size S (M) Head width approx. 52 cm or 20 1/2" Figures for size M are given in brackets. If only one figure is given, it applies to all sizes.
Beaded Cami I designed this cami to wear with a beaded skirt, but it looks just as good with jeans and strappy sandals. :: Cami is flared (A-line) :: For a seamless version, knit it in the round. To adapt pattern from straight needles to circulars, work the RS rows as written, but reverse the WS rows by reading from R to L and working the opposite sts. Eg: for straight knitting the patt reads: Row 2 (WS): P3, *P7, P2tog tbl, P2, YO, K1, YO, P2, P2tog, P7; rep from * to last 3 sts, P3.
I love knitting flowers and I started knitting this one on a bus ride to Aberdeen to visit friends and then finished it on the way back. This would look lovely pinned on to a suit jacket or even as an accessory for a handbag Knit-ability rating: Easy Materials
