When I saw cancun boxy lace top I immediately fell in love with the lace pattern but I wanted to have sleeves. So I decided to use Boxy pattern for the basic shapes and use the lace pattern from cancun boxy lace top instead of kitchener stitch.

I picked and knitted different lace patterns from the lacy top randomly. Not really following the pattern; the arrangement of lace patterns and row counts.

Used short-raws to form shoulders as Boxy used and knitted sleeves down from the body. (I personally don’t like knitting sleeves in round so knitted them flat and grafted together.

I was not sure at first if I had enough yarn and started with pink yarn and my plan was I would use pink or orange linen yarn when gray ran out. Fortunately I did not run out of the gray yarn but I thought I needed to use the pink yarn somewhere to match the hem of the body since I used it there. So I trimmed the neckline with pink!!

I’m so happy and love it!!

このcancun boxy lace topを見たとき、レース模様に心を奪われてしまって編まずにはいられない衝動に駆られるも、自分的には袖が欲しいのでBoxyの形をふまえつつ、ボディ部分はメリヤスではなく、レース模様にしようと始める。
