Some knitting patterns are all about texture, and with this elegant, understated design, the cable strip really adds a twist. Sarah Hatton says she chose the yarn because she knew it would emphasise this detail: “The Favorito yarn has a beautiful soft handle and light texture, making it perfect for this simple cable detail top.”
Though the yarn knits as aran, being sleeveless and ultra soft ensures it’s lightweight enough for these early autumn days, while the enticing colour gives it a fresh feel that will make it just as appealing to wear next spring. In short, it’s the ideal transitional wear. As winter creeps in, swap your blouse for a long-sleeved tee and you’ll still be in the pink!
We think it’s perfectly balanced between smart and casual, so it will team as beautifully with neater daytime outfits for the office as it will with jeans for a walk in the park.
This pattern is designed for eight UK dress sizes, from size 8 (to fit bust 81cm) to size 22 (to fit bust 117cm). You'll find our full list of knitting abbreviations here.
