More Summer Knits...

Happy May Friend!

I hope you are enjoying spring or bits of summer or maybe it’s time for some crisp fall weather for those in the southern hemisphere. No matter where you are I hope you have a happy project on your needles!

And if you are looking for something quick to knit up that can be worn most anytime of year (great for layering!)…I am excited to share Silverstone with you!

Why the name Silverstone? Well the color is a first start but when in Arizona visiting my parents I love reading the street signs around Scottsdale - so many inspiring names…Silverstone is one of those. And at the same time of this visit I was also watching the opening race for the Formula 1 season and the famous England race at Silverstone kept coming into the conversations. So it goes without saying it was perfect match!

This raglan top is short-sleeve, knit from the top down and separating for the short sleeves. The raglan has a mock-cable design worked throughout and after you split for the sleeves, you will begin a delicate lace pattern repeat that is featured on your right side (when wearing). The bind-off is finished with a stretchy, clean sewn bind-off. Knit in DK weight - it will fly off your needles!

Many thanks to Blue Sky Fibers for their yarn support for this design. Silverstone features Blue Sky Fibers Skyland. This gorgeous yarn is like butter in your hands and wears/washes beautifully. Yarn and yardage details below:
