With its pretty little cap sleeves worked in a lacy ridge pattern, this V-necked top by Katya Frankel has a vintage feel. The seamless design is worked from the top down, with raglan sleeves and waist shaping. The front neck is lowered with short rows to ensure a comfortable fit; the neckband is knitted on after the body is finished. Katya has used Debbie Bliss’s new Cotton Denim DK yarn, which is dyed in a range of denim-effect blue and sorbet shades that knit up into a fabric with a subtle, washed-out effect.
