This Knit Along focuses on light & airy spring tops. These make great layering pieces for spring/fall days, and are cool enough to wear on their own on sultry summer days.
We'll meet on Zoom two Saturdays in April & May. The kick-off is on Local Yarn Shop day!

All four are nice and simple...Ankers has a yoke with an easy knit/purl pattern and good mindless knitting for the body; Dorothea is knit in two pieces with yarn overs that are dropped for quick progress; Bright Side has a few short rows at the beginning, then a 4-round increase section for the raglan yoke, with more mindless knitting as we cruise through spring into summer. We made ours with stripes in three colors, but you can keep to one color if you'd prefer. Rift is bottom up, with twisted rib split hem, German short rows, and three needle bind off, on a slightly cropped tee with lots of positive ease. This pattern in particular is great for knitters who want to learn some new things or could benefit from some tailoring - it has options for bust darts, two necklines, and sleeve opening sizing.
