FREE Pattern Thursday

Share Button

Hi Everyone

This week’s FREE pattern is a lovely Edie Eckman design.    The Summer Breeze Top is knit using Universal’s Cotton Supreme.

The flattering shape of this top is accented with lovely stitch details including a basketweave cable and diamond lattice.  This is a more challenging knit but not one that should intimidate you.  If you’ve never tackled cabling before I would suggest taking the time to do a practice swatch for the stitch patterns just to get the feel for them.

Cotton Supreme is 100% cotton and feels simply wonderful.

It knits at 4-5 sts/inch on a US 7-9 needle.  Each 100 gm hank has 180 yards and costs only $8.00!  That means this garment can be made for as little as $24.00 and up to $48.00 for the largest size.

Enjoy!

Kathy
