200 designs, I can’t believe it! The years have passed so quickly, I have had so much fun - and the knitting needles have not rested:)

Number 200 had to be special, and I am really proud to present my summer-top.

*Design and construction.**
The main-feature of this top is the circular, lace-patterned yoke.
The hems of the sleeves and lower are worked in pattern. The rounded neckline, the sleeves and lower body are finished off with an i-cord bind-off.
The top is worked top-down and seamlessly.
The lace-pattern might seem a bit elabortate, in fact it is simple and awarding to knit.

Sizes
Finished chest measurements, after washing/blocking, and worked at gauge: 77/85/93.5/102/110/120/132 cm = 30.5/33.5/37/40/43.5/47/52”.

Materials
Yarn: I recommend that you use a fingering weight, that knits up to gauge, to work the top.
I used “Lin” from Järbo garn to work the top. This fingering weight, linen yarn comes in skeins of 100 gr/3.53 oz and 200 m/219 yards. You will need approximately 600/650/760/820/880/940/1000 m = 654/709/829/894/960/1025/1090 yards of this specific yarn to work the top. Needles: size 3 mm/US2.5,

Gauge
24 sts and 32-34 rounds in stockinette sts, after blocking/washing = 10 x 10 cm/4 x 4”.

Knitting skills
Intermediate.
Techniques used: provisonal cast-on (optional), short-rows,
increases, i-cord bind-off.

The pattern
The pattern gives instructions for the provisional cast-on, the short-rows and the i-cord bind-off.
The lace-pattern of the yoke is charted, as well as written out, round-by-round.
The pattern of the hems is written out round-by-round.
All stitch-counts are given.
Measurements are given in cm’s as well as in inches.
There is a schematic.

Possible mods:
As with all top-down sweaters you have the possibility of adding length to the sleeves and/or the body.
