I have wanted to create a top that would introduce another medium to the craft of knitting for some time now. After several trials, I finally hit on something~ or at least I think so….
The avant garde and slightly oversized, pure fun and a bit out of the ordinary Hardware top was born.
Easy to knit and in one piece flat. Even a beginner can handle it. The application of the grosgrain ribbon and D-rings called “hardware” can be done by hand or sewing machine and is pretty straight forward.
This top certainly has the WOW factor, doesn't it?
No worries, there is a photo tutorial to guide you through it. It's simple heavy duty grosgrain ribbon and belt buckle D-rings. You can hand sew with a darning needle or use your sewing machine for the application of the ribbon.
For bust sizes ranging from 36” up to 52” to be worn with 10”-14” of positive ease.

- All the yarns needed in your size in a Dralon, Bamboo and Cotton mix.
