June’s issue of I Like Knitting is extra special for me because I have 2 patterns published in it! If you missed the Summer Sweetheart Sweater, check it out here. This post is all about the Strawberry Wine Top, and I especially love it because I always need an all over stitch pattern when I’ve knit something in stockinette!
Here are some of the features:
-All over oyster stitch – it’s fun and it knits up quickly
-Knit with cotton bulky yarn so it’s great in spring/summer/fall
-Knit in the round from the bottom up
-The sleeves are a bit puffy and fluttery for a romantic vibe
We can’t resist this top and its blushing hues of strawberry wine. Its small cap sleeves are designed to drape and flutter as you move, while the bodice is simply constructed, works up quickly, and showcases the oyster stitch. Enjoy the way its bulky cotton yarn allows for a beautiful fit for a relaxing summer evening.
