Finally! I started this project in May, just after my Tubey was finished - but it's ok since it would have been too warm anyways in the height of summer Smiley

This top was inspired by the following:
Lelah
and
HSLS(aka HelloSunshineLaceSweater)
plus
a cracking tutorial on top down raglan construction

The result is Cerise

Knit with Vintage Yarn Bellmans Wonder 4-ply crepe, 80% Wool,. 20% Nylon, ca. 190m/50g
I used just shy of 6 skeins.





Detail of the neckline


Close-up of the pattern


I havent yet blocked this sweater - I think it will improve the drape somewhat - without loosing shape (because of the Nylon content)

Now a quick scarf from Knitty, before something else newly designed finds its way onto my needles Cheesy

Thanks for looking
