I’m all aflutter

A light, airy and perfectly balanced top. The bottom lace knits up first and sets the stage of this all over lacy appearing sweater with a slit on one side. A bit of everything is going on here, from knitting in the round to knitting flat. The sleeves are picked up and knitted flat in Garter Stitch. They are left un-seamed for even more comfort and flair and add another texture.

For bust sizes 36”/40”/42”/46”/50”/54”.

Just when I was ready to publish the pattern and make the knit kits available in 2018, the yarn called Linen became unavailable, so I knitted a second one in Auxanometer by Theodora’s Pearls. Well, Linen is now available again in limited supplies….
