Blue Rainbow Top for Lara

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo pleased with this.

I made this top with the blue rainbow handspun.
I think it's absolutely gorgeous.
I'm so proud of myself I dyed the tops, spun the yarn, made up the pattern and knitted it.


  1. Love it! and wouldn't you know I just bought a vintage pattern and it looks similar at the top of the bodice there is an option for a knitted cuff sleeve. the bodice is knitted in a rib. It's Patons Book 432 Touch Of Ice Knitting (which I think is a cotton blend?
    This one has the straps sewn on rather than knitted on.

  2. LOL Well let me know if you want my pattern, planning on writing it up and putting it on here.
    I actually thought of doing rib or seed stitch for bodice but then thought that the pattern of the yarn was enough.
    It's completely seem free other than kitchener grafting of the straps at the back.

  3. Lovely work, as always Zan!
