08/04 • SOLDOTNA TOP • Intermediate Knitting, August 4, 11, 18 & 25 (3-5 pm) Sundays$120.00
The SOLDOTNA TOP is the popular new pattern by Caitlin Hunter and holy moly is it cute!! It's technically called the SOLDOTNA CROP, but we made a not-so-cropped version that looks really good, so we are calling it the SOLDOTNA TOP. The SOLDOTNA is a top-down circular yoke sweater that features stranded colorwork. Caitlin designed this sweater with unpredictable spring weather in mind. We imagine layering this little top over linen dresses as well high-waisted skirts and pants. The design can easily be lengthened if crops aren’t your style (we love both versions!), instructions are included in the pattern. This design is simple enough for an adventurous beginner, yet still engaging for advanced knitters. Best of all, the cropped length and sleeveless style make this a super quick and gratifying project. The body length is easily adjustable - keep in mind changes will alter the yardage required. The pattern comes in sizes XS through 3X. We knit up samples for the shop in both Woolfolk Flette and Swans Island Washable Wool. This sweater would look great in a lot of different yarns! Come into the shop to explore the possibilities.
