This handout has been resurrected by popular demand but please be aware this is not a traditional step-by-step pattern, this project is for those creative souls who can work with a general guide-line but like to do their own thing…

This little top evolved from a weaving mistake I made, but the design I came up with for the pieces worked better in knitting. Very simple concept and fits almost everybody, the ‘puzzle’ part comes in when you put it on… I’ve sold these tops at art festivals and had to create a hang-tag that gives wearing instructions, because it looks like nothing you could actually wear before you put it on- kinda fun, and I’ve never seen anything else quite like it before.

Fun for the adventurous knitter to make & the simple shapes are easy to adjust for size & stitch pattern, Original simple shapes class handout includes measurements, diagrams & assembly instructions but it is left up to the maker to choose yarn, gauge & stitch pattern.
