Knitting A Lace Top: How To
We have a casual lace and rib top for you this week.
With warmer days ahead (we hope!) we chose this lovely lace top worked in Stylecraft Naturals Organic Cotton DK in Mauve (7184).
Our top comes in six sizes ranging from 76/81 cm (30/32 cm) to 127/132 cm (50/52 ins). Actual size is around 18/13 cm (7/5 ins) larger giving you a comfortable fit.
Comfort is in our mind with the yarn choice, too. As well as being gentle on the skin, natural-fibre yarns are more sustainable and biodegradable making them a good choice for the planet. To find out more about the yarn, view the shades available and find your local stockist, visit www.stylecraft-yarns.co.uk.
We have graded this top as an Intermediate knit. The lace panel on front and back consists of 12 rows with a 19-stitch repeat. It features the usual lace stitches so we would recommend practising the panel if this is new to you.
The sleeves and yoke offer a contrast in a ribbed pattern and there is very little shaping apart front the shoulders, neckline and top of the sleeves.
This top is the ideal choice for smart or casual wear, a versatile choice to see you through the summer and beyond.
