If you're thinking to knit an airy, open cardi to throw on in a balmy day. Whippet is your match.
Another lovely design from Fallmasche.
Knitted from the top down, continguous set in sleeves, seamlessly with a bit of eyelet Lace on the sleeves and body and collar. A flattering open top for any shape.
I chose to knit with my of my favourite 3 ply yarn, the merino silk lace of Uncommon thread in Naval officer, gorgeous deep blue bought last year in 'yarn over Berlin' online shop. Less than 2 skeins it took with elongated body and three quarters sleeves.
The only thing to be wary is how tight the sleeves are..
Here are more shots..
Very pretty eyelet lace detail.
The following photos are from a working dye shop in 'yarn story' Bath. Carmen the shop owner is ever so brave with her carpet.. Oh and the table cover is not a real crochet blanket just a plastic cover :-)
I had a very good day playing with colours under the friendly supervision of Daisy from Devon Sun yarns,. It's not easy to get the right colour on the yarn. I so much more appreciated all those fab dyers out there.
