This is an inspired design by Bonne Marie Burns, called Cinnie. I knit mine in Elsebeth Lavold’s Bambool. This pattern/design has so much going for it:
- Flawlessly written.
- Easily modified for sleeve and body length.
- Lace pattern is written and charted.
- It is completely manageable to learn to read your stitches to know where you are in the pattern.
- NO SEWING! NOT ONE STITCH!
Extensive size options with finished chest measurements 31 (35, 37, 39, 41, 43, 47, 51)”
I would happily knit this again in a neutral color as a “go to” garment and in the shorter length as a topper to dresses.
The stockinette on the body balances out the lace on top. The shape is flattering for all body types.
I am looking forward to teaching it as a class at Westport Yarns this fall.
