This top was an absolute dream to knit. The body is mainly a 4×1 rib, giving a smooth look with just enough stretch. The front has this sleek, easy lace pattern up the center that keeps the knitting interesting. The yarn is Louisa Hardings Mulberry – 100% silk, with a beautiful ply and great yardage. I made the medium size, added a good 2″ to the body, and the shell still only took 5 skeins.
Speaking of which, the shop sample from Louisa Harding arrived at the shop yesterday – a simple, easy fitting tee with a cute crochet trim. It’s absolutely adorable. I’ll post a photo tomorrow.
