I don't think you need to be an experienced knitter to make a fashionable, fun and RIDICULOUSLY EASY short sleeved sweater top. So I've designed the "Ridiculously Easy Short Sleeved Top" for beginners who want to make something more exciting than a scarf. The sweater is a quick knit, made all in one piece and seamed on the sides. If you're looking to really impress everybody, I suggest you also purchase my "Ridiculously Easy Fashion Shrug" and knit both pieces as an ensemble. They will look gorgeous together and you can make it a casual ensemble, or a bit fancier for evenings out, depending on the yarn you choose. As with all my patterns, if you have any questions as you work up the design, please contact me and I'll be happy to help. I want you to have an enjoyable knitting experience with a successful outcome. NOTE: THANKS TO MY GOOD FRIEND SUSAN, WHO SERVED AS A MODEL. YOU'RE GORGEOUS, MY FRIEND!

Follow my blog at: I am certified as a Level 1 Master Hand Knitter by The Knitting Guild Association. My grandmother Lena taught me to knit when I was 4 years old and told me that a lifetime of knitting pleasure was her legacy to me. I love to design and knit and enter my work in competitions. I've won numerous awards and ribbons over the years and that's a lot of fun, but the greatest pleasure is the actual creative process. I specialize in Beginner and Intermediate level designs that teach new skills and promote excitement for the art that is Knitting. I think new knitters should have the opportunity to work with a well-written design that reinforces their current skills, teaches them new skills and gets a "WOW, you made that?!!?" response when showing off their completed project.
