The word manis in Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasa Melayu (in Indonesian and Malay), means sweet or adorable. In Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia, the word is associated with sweet desserts, confectionery, and a sweet and fragrant mango called Harum Manis. To me, it is a familiar word, associated with Dona Manis, a nostalgic little cake shop, popular among those who say that its banana tarts are the best in Singapore.

Wear Manis as a happy, fluffy topping to sweeten your outfit and feel its comfort giving your shoulders a light, soft hug. Knitted in the round from the bottom with a wavy hemline created by a nostalgic chevron lace pattern in fingering weight yarn, the rest of the pullover is understated and knitted with a single strand of lace weight silk-mohair yarn with a needle that goes up in sizes towards the shoulders. The result is a wonderful gradation of translucency and airiness in the fabric. The number of stitches to work also decreases towards the top, making the end of knitting come sooner than you know, which is great if you can’t wait to try on your pullover. But before you do, you will join the shoulders with no-sew Russian grafting using just a crochet hook, then work 2 rounds of finishing for each armhole. That’s it! Russian grafting gives you the perfect tension at joins, even for a yarn as fine and tricky as silk mohair one. It gives structure to the pullover at the shoulders with no puckering.

Have fun pairing colours. Perhaps you can find enough yarn in your stash, or will want to take the opportunity to get that fun looking skein you have been longing to try. For most sizes, one skein (or a leftover amount) of each yarn is enough to make your sweet little top.

manisという言葉はインドネシア語とマレー語で, 甘い, 愛らしいという意味です. インドネシア, シンガポール, マレーシア一帯では, デザート, お菓子や, 甘く香り高いマンゴーHarum Manisと結びつけられる言葉です. 私にとっては, 小さな懐かしいケーキショップDona Manisと結びついたなじみ深い言葉で, あの店のバナナタルトはシンガポール一とする人たちの間で知られたお店です.

ノースリーブのトップスに甘さを添え, 幸せな気分になれるふんわりとしたトッピングとして着て, その肩をそっと柔らかく包む心地良さを感じて下さい. ボトムアップ式に裾から輪で編み, 中細糸で編むノスタルジックなシェブロンレース模様が波形のヘムラインを作り出します. 続きは控えめに, 極細のシルクモヘア糸一本取りで編み, 肩に向かうにつれ針のサイズを徐々に上げながら編むことで, 透け感と軽さがすばらしいグラデーションになった編地が生まれます. 上に向かうにつれ編む目数が減るので, 予想よりも早く編み終わり, 試着するのが待ちきれない方にはピッタリでしょう. でもその前に, とじ針要らずな, かぎ針1本だけを使うロシア式引き抜きはぎで肩を合わせ, 左右の袖ぐりを輪で2段ずつ編みます. それだけでおしまいです!ロシア式引き抜きはぎは, 細く扱いづらいシルクモヘアのような糸でも最適な手加減ではぎ合せることができ, 編地が攣れることなく, 肩にプルを支える接ぎ目を与えます.

糸の色合わせも楽しんで下さい. 在庫に十分な糸があるかもしれませんし, 以前から試してみたかった見かけの面白い糸を試す機会とする方もいるでしょう. それぞれの糸はほとんどのサイズで1かせ(または残り糸)で十分です.
