Top notes, is a fabulously textured piece to knit and even better to wear~
Whether you choose to create the cowl or the poncho version, you are going to fall in love with this one. The test knitters sure did...
It's knitted in the round, from the bottom up with a stunning lace pattern and an easy cable stitch. The decreases up to the neckline are just beautiful and the I-cord bind off tops it all off.
This is project #4 in the **Notes Collection**, a series of patterns from cowls to a shawl and even a sweater, all using similar stitches though each piece offers a bit of a twist.
For sizes S/M/L/XL (to fit bust sizes 34-38, 40-44, 46-50 and 52-56).
The pattern is written, charted and also has a how to video link. It has been tech edited and test knitted, so hopefully it's perfect but if you encounter a problem, feel free to message me.
