Positive ease: 
6 (5.5, 4.5, 4, 3)(2.5, 1, 0, 0) inches

This lace top was inspired by its namesake, the dyer behind Bay Street Yarns: Anne Jensen! This top is designed to be knit up holding two strands of fingering held together, or knitting regularly with one strand---depending on your preference when it comes to color blending! The yoke will be spent creating a lace yoke that mimics colorwork! My hope was to create a fresh take on yoke-based, top-down knitting. I hope you enjoy this challenging project!

There is a lot of positive ease in this design, so please keep that in mind when picking your size out! One last thing before you get started…the colorwork on this pattern is not for the faint of heart —there are 60-70 rows of tri-color stranded knitting!

The Mary Pullover is the PERFECT project for your fall knitting list. This breezy, chunky/bulky weight pattern knits up super quick while giving you the chance to play with color blending, basket stitch and eyelet seaming! The entirety of this pattern is knit with one strand of fingering/sock weight yarn and one strand of chunky/bulky yarn held double. This creates a “marled” look for your sweater and gives it some extra dimension! This sweater is also completely reversible. I like to rock my reverse stockinette side!

This top was inspired by the Altered Stitch’s yarn crawl theme: I Love the 90s! I’ve taken a contemporary twist on your favorite crop top from the good old days of totally tubular 90s fashion! The Sabrina Junk Top is knit in fingering weight held double, allowing for color blending. Use two different colors or more and have fun blending yarns together for this project! The top is knit from the bottom up in 1x1 and 2x1 rib stitch pattern. The top is knit in the round until you separate for the armholes and knit the rest of the garment flat, attaching the front to the back with an i-cord edging and strap. I hope you have fun with this knit!
