Diamond District Top

Diamond District Top

Sometimes the most effective designs are the ones that look simple but have touches of something different. Laura Zukaite's Diamond District, in Crystal Palace Yarn's Panda Silk, is just that type of design, with the added touches being the shaped sleeve-edge ribbing. The body of the top is worked in an easy Diamond Lace Pattern, letting the subtle shades of the yarn shine.

Asymmetry Top

Asymmetry Top

Young, fun and so "city", Asymmetry, designed by Leslie Roth in Shi Bui's Linen, is incredibly light and airy. Leslie's top is knitted side-to-side with the lower edges slanting purely through the decreases in the pattern stitch. Asymmetry's "edge" is defined by its exposed seams and accented by its openwork border, mirrored at the neckline.

T-shirt "Kari"


“THE FAIR Isle design on this top was inspired by Norwegian Selbu patterns,” says Anniken Allis. “It’s worked in the round - be brave and steek it, or play it safe and knit the front and back yoke separately.”
