This pattern is also available in the book Light & Layered Knits, available for purchase.
Shoulder caps and neck trim require about 306 yards (4 skeins of suggested yarn), in addition to the 688.5-918 yards needed for the top itself.
Body-hugging with the slide of silk, this dressy top offers a nod to the Celtic influence in knitting. The extended shoulder sections create small sleeve caps, with Celtic designs showcased along the shoulders. The stand-up collar accentuated with bobbles and the ribbing along the sides amplifies the close-fit shaping and brings sophistication to the sleeveless style. Worked in a silk tape yarn infused with a subtle metallic fiber, the soft hand of this elegant top can join the party for an evening out or top a pair of jeans to amp up the casual.
