I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 5 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year.View all patterns by designer (38) »
Dress it up, or dress it down! You can pair this top with jeans for casual look, or you can you can weave ribon on the lace section for romantic and feminine looks. The front opening is low enough to show your sexy cleavage, or you can sew it up if you feel it is too low (I add button for accessory). This top is knit in the round, from the top down, and in one piece, so there's no seaming. Pattern is available in fingering weight and DK weight yarn.
Sizes: See measurement table. The sizing of the sweater is easy to customize. I've included sizing guidelines, but keep in mind that you can control the size. I also included tips how to make it fit to your own measurement. Since this is knitted from top down, you can try it as you go.
