version 2.0 of Look at My Holes is now available. This is not a new pattern, it is an update to the existing pattern. This version includes neck shaping, simpler increases, and more detailed stitch counts, as well as a new video tutorial. Full disclosure, version 2.0 did not undergo testing, if there are some small mistakes, I am sure they will be spotted and dealt with quickly. If you are not comfortable knitting an untested version of the pattern, please use version 1.1 which has been successfully knit by many hundreds of knitters, or give version 2.0 a month to settle in in case there are any road bumps. For the time being version 1.1 will remain available as well, probably for at least 6 months.

#LookAtMyHoles is a top down, seamless raglan crop top with a simple lace repeat creating large holes all around the garment. The combination of large needles and the lace motif make this an incredibly low yardage pattern. Perfect for layering, this top is designed to be worn with coordinating tank top, #AsFriendsTank by Jessie Mae Martinson. Look at My Holes also looks cool on its own, but for the full effect of the #LookAtMyHolesAsFriendsSet you need to make both!

My original sample is knit in Kelbourne Woolens Mojave, which is a 60% cotton, 40% linen sport weight yarn with 185 yards (169 meters) per 50-gram skein. I recommend plant-based fibers for this summer pattern, but you can use any yarn that gets you gauge.

My new version 2.0 sample is knit in Ritual Dyes Undine in the colorway Rye.

Note: This pattern is knit in the round on circular knitting needles. I like using circular needles that are 24” (61cm) from tip to tip, but use whichever cable length is comfortable for you to knit in the round.
• US 9 (5.5mm) circular knitting needle for body and sleeves in lace pattern
• US 5(3.75mm) circular knitting needle for 1x1 ribbing
• 4 ring stitch markers
• Darning needle for weaving in ends
