Notes From the Designer:

•Graceful is an oversized sleeveless top that is a perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. The loose fitting style of this top compliments many body types beautifully. One size is listed and instructions are included for those who wish to customize.

•The pattern includes written directions along with a chart and video.

•Pattern is worked in one size with plenty of positive ease to fit a wide range of body types. Using the schematic provided, you will make two rectangular pieces that are 30 inches wide with a height of 17.5 inches. The rectangles will be sewn together using the provided diagram. Once sewn, the top will fit up to bust size 56 inches with plenty of positive ease.

-To make your top shorter or longer, simply add more rows in a four row repeat while keeping with the cable pattern from rows 3-6.

-For a smaller or larger width, adjust the number of beginning chains (and hdc stitches in the center) by multiples of 10.

•The design features two vertical stripes of cable stitches to add visual interest, giving the top a polished and graceful look. Grab your hook and yarn and don’t forget to share your version of Graceful with us!

From the designer: When you live your life with confidence, you walk tall and stand with graceful ease. Springtime and Summer are typically my most confident months where I make a conscious effort to hold my head high and present myself in a graceful manner. Part of this exercise in confidence includes the wardrobe that I choose to wear. I love items that are stylish, bright, and fun. Because of this, I chose to include some of that fun and confident energy in this design. Have fun with your own Graceful Summer Top, make it fit your personality so that your confidence will shine in a graceful way.
