I finished it! Yay! I love it and it's already gotten a lot of use this summer! Somehow it was almost a month ago when I shared my bottom rib progress and I'm just now sharing the finished project. Better late than never, right?
I made several modifications to knit in the round to avoid seaming and to try it on as I knitted - I'm happy with these mods. Very. Happy. This was a seriously fun knit, even if I was griping about missing the elasticity of wool during knit night/morning. It was really nice to knit something for myself and have the freedom to veer from the pattern, and veer I did!
Pattern: Cap Sleeve Lattice Top by Purl Bee – MODIFIED
Yarn: Skinny Cotton by Blue Sky Alpacas (30 Birch & 314 Gravel)
Raveled: Cap Sleeve Lattice Top – modifications are noted
I love knitting with wool, but as far as cottons go, Blue Sky has hit this one out of the ballpark! With the multiple plies, the lace was a little slow going, but the stitch definition on the lattice and the twisted rib bottom is stunning. And then there's the drape, oh my! I'm already dreaming of knitting another Skinny Cotton garment next spring!
