Leafy autumn’s on its way and we couldn’t be happier. Traffic light fields thick with crunchy leaves, last of the summer sun and bonfires! What a stunning season. This relaxed cotton top is just right for the weather, and its leafy panel pays its autumnal respects.


While this is a simple make (especially for a garment), a set of stitch markers will help you keep count off all those trebles. With the two pieces exactly the same, use the back as your practice side for a stitch-perfect front.

To hook up this fantastic pattern, you’ll need:

Scheepjes Skies Light (100% cotton, 100g/340m) Cumulus (111)

A 3.5mm (US E/4) hook

Find your local yarn stockist at www.scheepjes.com
