First there was Hanke Dress that I love a lot. A subtle lace yoke and the sea of stockinette, so feminine and comfortable to wear. The idea for a top with the same stitch pattern was “in the works” all the time. Until last month when I finally said “Let’s do it!”
Named after a lovely friend of mine, Chonita top is here, ready for you to CO.

The top is worked in two ways: the lace yoke is worked bottom up, while the body and sleeves are worked from top to bottom. Fun and cool to make ;)

This weekend you can see the top in two versions during Woollinn Dublin Festival at Martin’s Lab booth. See you there!
