    Description

    Sweet and simple and super-swingy… The idea was to give that gauzy, “tutu” feel while keeping this top modern and practical. The result is not too frilly but definitely girly!

    ~~~

    This top is knit seamlessly from the top down. First it is worked flat with an I-cord edging, then it is worked in the round. Stitches are picked up around the body to create a welt, then the ruffled skirt is worked in the round to the hem. The sleeves are worked in the round. An attached I-cord and an I-cord button loop are worked on the neck portion.

    Skills required: long-tail cast on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, picking up stitches, working a welt (explanations and link to an online tutorial provided,) working an I-cord edging, working an attached I-cord and an I-cord button loop closure (explanations provided).
