A touch of vintage style adds appeal to this short-sleeved top. It’s knitted in smooth Rowan Wool Cotton 4ply, but has a touch of shimmer through the use of Rowan’s sparkling Kidsilk Eclipse and sequinned Kidsilk Glamour on the edgings and the Fair Isle motif on the front.
The high neck has an opening at the back, fastened here with three retro shank buttons. The waist is subtly shaped to ensure a feminine fit.
Note: work instructions for yarn B by holding strands of Kidsilk Glamour and Kidsilk Eclipse together.
