Spring is the perfect time for lighter fabrics such as linen and silk. It’s also a time for renewed life. So, Shibui’s newest yarn, Twig, is perfect for your spring knitting. Twig’s linen and recycled silk create a light, refreshing look that bends and bows with grace, like new branches in the Spring. It knits up into a beautiful fabric -- soft and cool, with the kind of drape that is effortless.

All of these qualities are captured in Mia, an a-line top with a flowing skirt. The drape of the yarn along with the feminine details of the seed stitch and crochet edging form a flattering top. The skirt swings and dances around your hips. The union of the yarn and design creates a very wearable top that is simply elegant.

Mia, a simple elegant name for a simply elegant top. Mia has several origins with varied meanings such as mine, beloved, dear or darling. Once you wear Mia you will be calling it “my dear beloved top!”

This pullover is constructed from the top down in one piece with short-row shoulder shaping and short rows in the back to make it longer than the front. Body shaping is created by a gather in the back. The top fronts and back are worked flat until they are joined under the arms, then it is worked in the round.

After Joining Front pieces the pattern should read as follows:
Repeat these 2 rows 2 (1, 1, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)
