Knitting kit for No 43 top by VesterbyCrea in Önling No 21 + Silk mohair
No 43 top is a stunningly beautiful summer top knitted with structure knitting on the body and short sleeves in garter stitches. The contrast between the cotton/linen yarn on the body and the added mohair sleeves gives the top a lovely and feminine touch!
The top is worked top-down and here we knit it in 2 strands of Önling No 21 and silk mohair for the sleeves.

Then the front piece is worked from stitches placed on hold. The front piece is worked in patter and increases on either side. The front piece is joined with cast on stitches from the back piece and then worked in the round in pattern and finished with a ribbing and tubular italian bind off. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up along the arm hole and then worked in short rows and then worked in the round in stockinette. The sleeves are finished with a ribbing and bind off. The summer top is seamless.
