Juliet Summer Top Knitting Pattern for women
The Juliet summer top is a feminine and playful summer top knitting pattern. Simple eyelets add a lace detail to the sleeves, bottom and neckline. Wear it with a pair of shorts for a cute everyday casual summer outfit. Or add a jeans and open cardigan on chiller days.
Made out of LionBrand Coboo, a dreamy cotton bamboo blend, it's a delight against your skin with amazing drape.
Thanks to the top-down in the round construction you'll be able to try your top on as you go and won't have to spend much time sewing.

Knitting with Chopsticks
I’m Hortense, a passionate knitter, crocheter and yarn addict. I created Knitting with Chopsticks (www.knittingwithchopsticks.com) to share my creations and help you make your own.
It’s thanks to blogs that I have learned most of what I know about knitting and crochet. My mom taught me the basics of knitting whe n I was a small girl, bored on the beach (yep, that’s possible when you are 10) and since then I haven’t stopped. Always looking to learn, do more, do better and share my love of yarn, I created Knitting with Chopsticks to make knitting and crochet as simple as it gets so YOU can create what YOU want the way YOU want it.
Engineer by trade, crafter by passion, you will usually find me playing with some yarn while watching the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy (and probably eating some chocolate, I’m from Belgium, what can I say?).
