Caesura Redux is your simple, sophisticated top that dresses up or down as you please. In winter it morphs into an elegant evening top.
Worked in DK weight, it knits up fast so you may need a few in different colours and variants.
It’s a FUN (slightly odd) construction.
Like any true Ziggurat Caesura Redux is knitted from cast on to cast off in one big zig-zaggy sweep from beginning to end, except here there is a caesura, a pause—a single cut of the yarn to make things just a bit easier, and maybe a tad less ziggurately obsessive.
Step-by-step instructions (with sketches and photos) show you how to get from start to cast off, and how to work the special manoeuvres.
There are optional bust darts and optional rear shaping. The hem is worked sideways and attached to the live sts.
The pattern is written and has helpful charts to keep track of rows and shaping. There are also tips for how to modify sizing.
