Another knit summer top
knit on size 5 needles out of KnitPicks Shine in worsted weight, I cast on 180 and used the Chevron & eyelet pattern (Vogue Knitting book, 1989, p 149) I did 2 repeats then decreased for sides. When the top measured 11-12 inches from the bottom I did short rows (hence the wierd blocking.) The square neck front and back are not symmetrical. I made the back much lower, but the front covers my bra well. I put a picot edging on the neckline. I did the Chevron & eyelet pattern on the edges of the sleeves. I need to post a picture of me wearing this, but for now this is what you get. It is a cotton blend so it does stretch after a bit of wear.
