In this week’s knitting preview, you get a sneak peek at a little luxury.
In the September 21 issue of “The People’s Friend”, we’re indulging ourselves with this textured top worked in a top quality yarn.
It features Rico Design Luxury Hand Dyed Happiness DK, a beautiful yarn in blues and greens which blend and merge to create a stunning palette.
Worked against a background of reversed stocking-stitch, leaf and stem motifs add a textured detail to the top.
These panels are worked over a 40-row repeat.
The stitches are not too difficult, but careful counting is essential.
For this reason we have graded this an Intermediate piece.
Instructions cover six sizes, ranging from 76/81 cm (30/32 ins) to 127/132 cm (50/52 ins).
Actual size is 7 – 12 cm (2 – 4 ins) bigger.
The short sleeves make it an ideal choice for this time of year, when the weather can be variable, and it is perfect for wearing around a heated house when the temperatures drop
The yarn comes in 100-gram hanks, and you need between two and four to complete your garment.
Order from your local Rico stockist or from www.laughinghens.com.
This is a timeless top, which is versatile enough to suit any occasion.
Go on, treat yourself!
