One of my other crafting passions is knitting my own clothes.
This top I adapted from a plain jumper pattern
I got some lovely dark pink yarn, the luxury aran range from Poundstretcher.
I decided to knit a smaller size, so it would fit snuggly,, I find a snug fit is warmer, which is needed when doing a vest type garment
I added two lines of simple cable down the front and back, just enough to lift the pattern and add a bit of interest
It was fun adapting a plain jumper to make this sleeveless top.
The different textures were easy to add, and I do like how it fits
The neck and the sleeve tops were patterned in garter stitch.
Just added a little bit of interest to those areas, without being too detailed.
Im really pleased how the garment fits, will work nicely with a polo neck jumper, and also a thinner top for added warmth.
