KNITTING WITH pure cashmere is such a treat, and here Jennie Atkinson has used the luxuriously light and indulgent Cashmered 3ply yarn to create a very special summer garment. Her short-sleeved top has a feminine shape, with its wide yoke and waist shaping. The yoke section is adorned with a lovely drop stitch pattern, which incorporates Swarovski beads for a subtle sparkle.

32 - 34 - 36 - 38 - 40 - 42 - 44 - 46 - 48 inches

Actual bust:
33 - 35¼ - 37¼ - 39½ - 41½ - 43¼ - 45¼ - 47½ - 49½ inches

Model shown in Cashmered 3ply ‘Pink’ colourway (51891)

Calls for:
6 - 6 - 7 - 7 - 8 - 8 - 9 - 9 - 10 x25g balls

Also calls for Swarovski Crystal 6mm Bicone Beads and recommends 6mm (UK 4/US H/8) crochet hook or thread, for threading beads on yoke stitches.
Two beads are placed at one time on every fifth stitch over 231 (247:259:262:272:273:285:285:286) stitches.
