Knitted Top: How To
We have a lovely versatile top for you to knit this week.
Our colourful knitted top features batwing sleeves and an eyelet pattern running vertically.
We’ve chosen a beautifully bright, variegated blue yarn, King Cole Summer 4-Ply. We are often asked for 4-ply designs so we hope this will be a winner.
The shade used is Neptune (4569), a glorious mix of blues running from very pale through turquoise to darker blue. You can view all the shades available and find your local stockist at www.kingcole.com.
Instructions come for five sizes ranging from 76/81 cm (30/32 ins) to 117/122 cm (46/48 ins). Actual size is around 13/8 cm (5/3 ins) bigger offering a comfortable fit that will allow for a layer underneath is you want.
We have graded this as an easy design – the four-row pattern is worked over thirteen stitches and repeated front and back. You increase to add the sleeves as you work, so the top consists of two pieces. If you are making one of the larger sizes, you might find a circular needle helps here.
Finally, this is a great value design with the first three sizes costing less than £20 to knit.
A real winner in every way!
