In this knitting preview, a flourish of lace adds a feminine touch to a lovely summer top.

It comes in eight sizes ranging from 81 cm (32 ins) to 117 cm (46 ins). Actual size is around 6 – 8 cm (2¼ – 3½ ins) more.

The body of the top is worked in Rico Design Creative Sport Print DK in Light Blue. Use Rico Design Creative Sport DK in Off-White for the sleeves.

It is an economical make, costing from around £15 to £23 (excluding any postage costs).

We have designed it to knit up quickly. The Front and back are the same: stocking stitch with a raglan shaping.

Work the sleeves over a simple 4-row pattern. This is a good way to try a lace pattern if you have not done one before.
