We have a vintage-inspired top for you this week.
Our vintage-inspired top is perfect for this time of year.
It is worked in King Cole Bamboo Cotton DK. As the name suggests, it is a mix of bamboo and cotton which is comfortable to wear and perfect for people with delicate skin.
The shade featured is Pebble (610) and there are lots more colours to choose from if you prefer something else.
You can view the range and find details of your local stockist at www.kingcole.com.
We have instructions for seven sizes from 76/81 cm (30/32 ins) to 137/142 cm (54/56 ins). Actual size is around 9/4 cm (3½ /1½ ins) bigger.
The top is designed to be close fitting, so if you prefer a looser fit, you might want to you work a size up.
The design is graded as intermediate.
A cable pattern tops the deep ribbed welt and is worked over 20 rows. The eyelet lace pattern is then worked on front and back and the short sleeves. This comprises of a 16-row repeat.
A ribbed neckline completes the look.
If you like a vintage-inspired design, then we are sure this top will be the perfect choice.
