Cancun Lace Top

It finally stopped raining in the California bay area this weekend, so I got out to take some pictures of a top I knit last year. It was pretty warm and summery, and I’d been meaning to blog about this piece, so I was very excited. It’s sparkly and delicate, and I love it!

I used this Cancun Boxy Lace Top pattern and Blue Heron Rayon Metallic yarn in Polar Bear. I’m a big fan of this pattern because I learned a lot of different knit lace stitches, and they all work out really well together. It worked up pretty quickly as well.

The top is made in two identical rectangles and sewn together. I think it looks good as a casual beachy top with jeans or shorts, but I also think it could work as a more fancy peace over a little black dress.

It’s a little early (I’m aware), but… what ideas do you have for summer knit/crochet projects??

  1. You did a masterful job. It looks gorgeous on you. Is that a white white or off white. And you live in the SF Bay Area? Where do you shop? I’m a huge fan of Imagiknit and Fengari in HMB. And Atelier which is a few blocks from my office.Happy Knitting I look forward to following your blog.

    • Hi Renna!

      I usually shop at Uncommon Threads in Los Altos – I love their Tuesday evening knit night! I also go to Imagiknit when I’m in San Francisco, but I’ve never been to Fengari or Atelier. Do you go to any knit nights in the area?

  2. HI – just saw your question. No knit nights – various reasons…work and/or husband. what are you working on currently? I just finshed the glorious cable & coin lace wrap (rav) and got it off the blocking board finally. do you block your swatches?

    • I’m finishing up the Veera top from Pom Pom magazine and also working on the Oblagon shawl (Ravelry). I looked up the cable & coin lace wrap, and it looks so beautiful! I block swatches for garments but not usually for shawls.
