Pattern :: Tidewater by Laura Aylor
Yarn :: Knit Picks Lindy Chain, thicket colorway
Needle :: US 4 (3.5 mm)
The Tidewater top is finished. Knitting ended on August 10 and then I put off weaving the loose ends. Now that it’s completed, I wish I’d finished it sooner. It’s perfect for the summer weather and looks nice under a jacket.
I made several modifications to the pattern; the most obvious was knitting the body in stockinette instead of garter. Extra increases were added from the underarm down to give more drape and fullness. And last, I opted for side vents rather than the one back vent suggested. I Love It!
KP Lindy Chain is a 70% linen/30% cotton chainette yarn. This was my first time using Lindy Chain and I’m pleased with the feel and drape.
I think I’d enjoy knitting this again, maybe a size larger with 3/4 sleeves to make a cozy pullover.
I hope your September is off to a good start.
Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!
