Zenssy is the Little Fuchsia with sleeves (cute little puff sleeves, 3/4 length or long sleeves). The neckband is knitted flat, then join to knit the yoke in the round. It is totally seamless. Same as the Little Fuchsia, Zenssy also has cables on both sides of the top. But this time, I used different cables for this top.
The cables are actually easy to work. Suitable for beginner cable knitter.
There is a decorative leaves tie on the neckband. Instructions are given for working of the decorative leaf. There are 2 options of decorative leaf, a simpler to work garter stitch leaf and a more challenging double sided leaf. Instructions are given for both options.
