Based on the Knitalong project The Holiday Shawl, this top extends the use of Merino Cloud for a beautiful top accented at the top with the pattern from the shawl, and at the sleeves for some extra bling.
FIBER: 2-3 skeins of merino cloud (Body of sweater) + 3 Skein Beaded silk & Sequins light (for fairisle pattern)
Needles: US 7 Circular (DPs or 12" short tip circulars for the sleeves)
Pattern will be emailed upon release!
There are 3 sizes XS (S-M, L-XL)
28-32” (34-42”, 44-52”)
This is designed to be OVERSIZED. If you want to make sure it is oversized and you are at the upper end of the size range, you can use needles one size larger than the recommended size, making sure your gauge is slightly looser (less sts per inch).
If you want it to be less oversize and are in the lower end of the size range, you can use needles one size smaller than the recommended size, making sure your gauge is slightly tighter (more sts per inch).
Length is totally adjustable and I suggest getting an extra skein of Merino Cloud if you think you’ll want to make it longer.
