Kristen TenDyke - Bliss Top

  Bliss Top  
 

This striking tunic features lace panels, wide ribs, and garter stitch worked in two different directions. The yoke is worked first from the cast-on at one sleeve, across the bodice, and ends with the bind-off at the other sleeve, with the underarms shaped with a few short-rows along the way. Stitches for the body are then picked up around the lower edge of the bodice and worked in a single piece to the hem. Lovely!

Pattern available in Finish-Free Knits. See all designs in this book.
