Sparkles cable top

The Sparkles sleeveless cable top is worked in one piece from the bottom up until the armhole shaping, at which point the front and back are knit separately. The cable binding is worked first, then sewn together to form the hemline that the top is then cast onto. The yarn chosen for the model (size S) is a combination of Lana Grossa Silkhair Lusso (a mohair with some shimmer in it) and Lana Grossa Cashmere 16 fine, which gives it a more glamorous look. You can of course opt for any other combination, or a single thread of any DK or light worsted yarn (cat. 3) that fits the indicated gauge.
