Here is a great new top-down design that I recently finished and will try to release in May.
Of course, as with most all of my designs, the waist is shaped for a sexy fit. Increases are placed within the center of the 2 back lace panels to make it interesting.
The sleeves are finished with lace edgings and a stylish 3/4 length.
Then, the fronts are picked up and knit sideways with wide lace panels at the top and bottom. The shapes are tapered to create a very flattering V-neckline effect and nicely draped fronts when worn open.
This one is knit in Knitpicks Swish Worsted, which blocks out very well. The stitch definition and softness of the resulting fabric is perfect!
I'm just starting to write this one up and hope to have it ready in May.
The design is a bit kimono-like and can be worn in many ways with the use of a shawl pin or strategically placed snaps or buttons.
