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??
