Williamsburg Top is a seemingly simple tee with a Turkish Lace pattern worked across the shoulders. This modern piece from knit.wear Spring/Fall 2017 speaks of simplicity so wear it to the super market or dress it up with big bangle jewelry for a night out on the town. This project requires a little knitting in the round and some piece work.
Magazine Kit includes Knit.Wear Magazine Spring/Summer 2017 (pattern inside) and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Anchor Bay by Cascade Yarns (50% Cotton / 50% Superwash Merino Wool; 100g/262yds): 4 (4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6) Skeins. Shown in Black. Anchor Bay yarn shrinks after blocking. Length measurements in the instructions are given for pre-blocking (on the needles) and post-blocking. PRE-ORDER now available in all colors. Please contact us prior to placing your order for color availability, and allow at least 7 business days for shipping to your location.
ALTERNATE YARN: Findley DK by Juniper Moon Farm (50% Merino Wool / 50% Silk; 50g/131yds): 7 (7, 8, 9, 10, 10, 11) Skeins Solids or 4 (4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6) Skeins Dappled (Dappled is twice as much yardage per ball). Findley DK is not an exact match to Anchor Bay because of the silk content instead of the cotton. Both garments will have wonderful drape, but Findley DK will have a bit of shine and shimmer and will not shrink in the same way as Anchor Bay. Please swatch (wash and block) to obtain gauge.
