Knitting Preview: May 25, 2019 issue

Knitting Preview May 25

Fresh and bright, our striped top with short sleeves and a V neckline is perfect for this time of year.

It is worked in Stylecraft Bellissima DK in the delightfully named Raspberry Riot (3924), Bashful Blue (3930) B and Single Cream (3921).

Sizes range from 76/81 cm (30/32 ins) to 127/132 cm (50/52 ins) with a standard 5 -10 cm (2- 4 ins) ease.

We have listed it as Easy, because the only tricky thing is working in two colours at a time.

We recommend you carry the yarn not in use up the sides in the narrow stripe sections only, and work with one colour in the larger sections. If you have not done this before, maybe practise on a test square before you begin.

We love these bright contemporary colours, but if you prefer another colour scheme, don’t worry — there are plenty of other shades to choose from for a more muted effect.
