Some time ago I got some Hipknits silk yarn from a SP, but such beautifull yarn deserves some thinking about the project! Finally a bit over a month ago I had an idea: an easy sweater with a lace pattern!
Only I was afraid to design my own sweater with the silk yarn as you shouldn't frog it too much.
Therefore I did a test sweater in cotton:

 

Now, that it did work out. It was time for the real deal:

And a close up of the lace(the colors are more like in this pic)


The pattern can be found on my blog here or better here it is:

Cotton version
 
Size: XS-S with finished chest circumference of approx. 80cm
This pattern can be easily adapted for larger sizes!
Just cast on more stitches and work the yoke untill if fits you.
You might have to work in bust darts.

Gauge: 16sts X 28rows=10cm X 10cm

Materials:
3 hanks of Line 14 "Clip" from Online(166m/100g),
circular needles size 4mm in 60cm, 80cm length and DPNS for sleeves,
tapestry needle,
stitch marker

Lace pattern(for chart see below):
multiple of 8sts
1.Row: YO, K2, sl1, K2tog, psso, K2, YO, K1
2. Row and all even: K
3.Row: K1, YO, K1, sl1, K2tog, psso, K1, YO, K2
5.Row: K2, YO, sl1, K2tog, psso, YO, K3

Directions:
Yoke:
CO 112 sts = 70 cm neck circumference
Work 3 rows in 2x2-ribbing
Place markers after 17sts/39sts/17sts/39sts
Continue in stockinette(knit) while increasing every second row like this:
Kf&b before and after every marker
Continue untill its long enough(you can try it on by placing the stitches on waste yarn) and place sleeve stitches on waste yarn.

Body:
Join body stitches on circular needles and knit in stockinette untill just under bust.
Next row(eyelet row): *YO, K2tog*
Next row: K
Begin knitting in lace pattern, you might have to increase/decrease before starting(remember the pattern is a 8 stitch repeat, so you need a multiple of 8 stitches on the needle!).
Knit in pattern till desired length, then knit next three rows in garter beginning with a knit row.
BO all stitches.

left sleeve:
Transfer sleeve stitches from waste yarn unto needles.
Start knitting sleeves in stockinette untill desired length is reached.
Knit three rows in 2x2-ribbing
BO all stitches

right sleeve:
repeat as for left sleeve.

Silk version:
 
Size: XS-S with finished chest circumference of approx. 80cm
This pattern can be easily adapted for larger sizes!
Just cast on more stitches and work the yoke untill if fits you.
You might have to work in bust darts.

Gauge: 14sts X 25sts=10cmX10cm
Materials: 250-300g silk from Hipknits.com in two coordinate colors(I used one more solid color and one variegated),
needles size 4.5mm in 60cm, 80cm length and DPNS for sleeves,
tapestry needle,
stitch markers

Lace pattern(for chart see below):
multiple of 8sts
1.Row: YO, K2, sl1, K2tog, psso, K2, YO, K1
2. Row and all even: K
3.Row: K1, YO, K1, sl1, K2tog, psso, K1, YO, K2
5.Row: K2, YO, sl1, K2tog, psso, YO, K3

Yoke:
CO 88 sts = 60 cm with solid color
Work 3 rows in 2x2-ribbing
Place markers after 14sts/30sts/14sts/30sts
Change color every three rounds.
Continue in stockinette(knit) while increasing every second row like this:
Kf&b before and after every marker
Continue untill its long enough(you can try it on by placing the stitches on waste yarn) and place sleeve stitches on waste yarn.

Body:
Join body stitches on circular needles and knit in stockinette untill just under bust.
Next row(eyelet row): *YO, K2tog*
next row: K

Very cute! It looks nicely done, too! Makes me wish I could follow knitting patterns... Grin It amazes me that you can make your own. Love it! How long did it take you to design and make?

That's lovely!
Is it wrong that I prefer the cotton one? Hipknits silk and me don't get along too well.

Get out of my head!!! j/k  I was totally picturing a summer sweater like that the other day!  It is gorgeous and thank you for the pattern--this is definitely on my summer knitting list but I'll have to attempt to size it up.

Beautiful. I too think I dig the cotton version more. Maybe I just adore the color. Thanks for the pattern link. I love all the lace tops that keep showing up on here. Very pretty.

lovely.  great pattern and stitch detail!  I too think I prefer the cotton one, but Im pretty sure it's because you're modelling it and that gives it more shape and life.

Thank you sooo much for posting this finished project!  It is so beautiful and just the inspiration I've been needing.  I've been suffering from terrible knitter's block but I think your lovely HSLS has inspired me.  I think I'm going to do something sort of similar, in that the bottom part will be lace (maybe a simple herringbone rib lace) and the bodice stockinet.  Possibly mirrored on the sleeves?  Hmmm ... maybe a slightly bell-shaped sleeve.  Hmmmm ....

OOOHHHH!  I have a LOT of undyed laceweight cashmere that I need to use for myself rather than selling.  I've changed cashmere suppliers and have a bunch leftover from the old supplier that's slightly different in weight than the new stuff and so I've been using that as an excuse to HAVE to keep the older cashmere for myself  Wink  It will take forever to do the whole thing in laceweight, but I think maybe I will. 

YEEHA!  Thank you so much for posting your lovely sweater!!  You may just have saved my marriage, as I have been becoming perpetually more difficult to live with since I have been suffering from this knitter's block.

All the best,
 Deb aka Fearless Fibers

Yay! Great job, I love the cotton too, probably because I am not a fan or variegated yarn, or of silk (why am I creeped out that it comes from worms Huh )

Then maybe this picture changes your mind  Wink

It's Linie 14 "Clip" from Online with 166m/100g. I'm not sure if it's widely available outside of Germany, but substituting is very easy for this pattern!

I DO like it better on you than I did just lying there.  You're so tiny that it would be tough for clothes NOT to look good though...  Great job and thanks for the pattern!   Grin

Great pattern!! Cheesy I'm seriously contemplating of making one.. Though, it only knits up to 80 cm. bust? For the picture, you look my size, bust-wise.. How's the tension? I'm an 86 cm. bust, I think.. Should I re-write it, or do you think I could wear that? Huh

Miss_T_Dane, it should be no problem to adapt this pattern for larger sizes. Since the difference isn't that much I would probably only knit the increase rows a couple of more times.
The gauge for the cotton one is 16 sts, so 15 increase rows (30 rows total) should be enough. You can always try on your knitting to make sure it fits!

Happy Knitting!
