I made this top for my daughter during our annual trip to the Czech Republic several years ago. Before we left, she picked up the yarn, her favorite was blue at the time, to match the skirt I had sewn for her (pictured). Inspired by the flowers in the skirt, I made the lace in floral (read leaves) motif.
Worked in worsted weight, the top is a very QUICK knit. It took me only two days to make it! The construction is absolutely SEAMLESS so you weave in loose ends and the top is ready to wear.
The pattern includes both written instructions and charts so you choose whichever works best for you to follow. Five pictures and extra close-up pictures included with the pattern.
16 sts & 24 rows = 4" x 4" in St st.

I have been published in a variety of national and international magazines and books and design for select yarn companies.
I am a co-author of The Art of Seamless Knitting (Interweave, 2013).
I had worked as a head designer and project coordinator for Mission Falls yarn booklets, and as a technical designer for a fashion designer Anna Cohen for Imperial Knits Collection.
