Shaved Ice can be made with 4 colors or in a solid color. It is a cool summer top that has a bit of lace, a bit of texture and a pretty V neck.

You begin at the bottom and knit in the round until you reach the underarms, where you then knit back and forth. There are video links for the techniques you need for this top so please don’t be intimidated.

Color Selection: Fades and color blocks are good; just do not use a single speckled with 3 solids because it looks weird (ask me how I know!)

I taught a class on this last week with KnitWit in Portland and they have put together some kits. You can find them here.
