tyson – part one


There’s no escaping the cropped top this year and I really wanted to try a knit version. I wanted to give it a smart tailored look hence the use of eyelets and the ribbing detail.


The boat neckline is really flattering and the whole thing is supersoft and comfortable in Fyberspates Scrumptious 4-ply.


Of course, I know that this length of top isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and part two (photos to come soon) is a less daring longer version.


My textiles teacher kindly agreed to be my model for the longer top, so watch this space for a cute magenta version as soon as we get that photographed. I’m off to Germany for a few weeks tomorrow but hope to have the pattern available very soon after I get back.

I hope you’re all enjoying the summer holidays. We’ve had some very untypical warm weather in the UK recently and I even tried surfing whilst we were in Cornwall. Looking forward to some German sight-seeing now. Very inspiring I should think! 🙂

    I’ll be part of the crowd waiting to see the longer midriff version, however you wear this one to perfection! I loved Germany when I went in 1996 – Rostock and Hamburg – have a wonderful time!

    Veyr pretty! I love the capped sleeves and the shaping details. I’m not in my crop top years anymore, but I could totally see myself making a slightly longer version of this and wearing it all the time. Congrats on a beautiful knit!

    Very pretty top! I can’t wait to see the longer version. (And I love your red lipstick — very classic.) Enjoy Germany!
