I’m all aflutter
Published just in time for the DFW Yarn Crawl~
A light, airy and perfectly balanced top. The bottom lace knits up first and sets the stage of this all over lacy appearing sweater with a slit on one side. A bit of everything is going on here, from knitting in the round to knitting flat. The sleeves are picked up and knitted flat in Garter Stitch. They are left un-seamed for even more comfort and flair and add another texture.
For bust sizes 36”/40”/42”/46”/50”/54”.
