Open season for summerknits!

The Marigold top is a light cotton-wool top, which makes for a quick and easy summer project suitable for beginners looking for a challenge. It is knit in the round from the bottom up until the armholes, where front and back are split and worked separately. The top half of the upper body has a delicate diagonal lace pattern, which is mirrored on the lower border with a small eyelet pattern.

The shape of the lower body is straight without waist shaping, allowing thus for a comfortable ease for the upper body. Edges of both sleeves and neckline are made neat by picking up stitches and knitting two purled rounds.

The yarn used for the Marigold Top is the 50% organic cotton, 50% merino wool blend Onion Knit Fino (colours 522 and 537) which gives a very nice drape and stitch definition, perfect for the lace pattern. The wool-cotton combination also makes it a very comfortable top to wear directly on the skin.

The pattern includes schematics and diagrams for the lace pattern as well as written instructions.
