Lacy top – delicate elegance!

With an identical front and back, this top’s a stunner whichever way you look at it!


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
