Leaves Top without sash

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, k2tog, ssk, sk2p and do yarn overs.

Pattern Description:

The Leaves Top is a great summer knit. Made from lace weight yarn in an airy lace pattern its a great layering piece without adding warmth. What is even better - its the perfect lazy summer knit. All is knitted in one piece: you start with the sash and then pick up stitches for the top itself and knit your way up to the cute raglan sleeves. So no seaming is required at all.

The lace part is knitted flat and in the round in a leaf lace pattern, which is easy to memorize and doesn(tm)t need any difficult stitches. You dont want to emphasize your hip that much? No problemo! A version without the sash that is worked completely in the round is included in this pattern just for you. You prefer a wider neckline? Just try the top on as you knit and bind off in the round that suits you best! Just take it easy, trust the pattern and enjoy knitting!
