Here’s a knit for all kinds of brains: the ones who latch onto feats of engineering, as well as the ones that ponder beauty’s mysteries. Ainur Berkimbayeva‘s Tiny Tucks Top is filled with moments of surprise in both departments! A good challenge for intermediate or even advanced beginners, the front is knit sideways, with pretty little knit-in tucks along the way, then you pick up at the shoulders and knit the back top down. A few rounds of ribbing tidy up the bottom edge, while the neckline and armholes get a pick up and bind off finish. Lots to think about and tons of fun, too! Pick up just 2 or 3 skeins of lovely Cattail Silk to cast on, and view Product Details below for more info.
