Summer Linen

I finished up another knit top, using a pattern from this book:

There are lots of cute patterns in this book, I made the Layered Ruffle Sweater, shown here:

I think it was the glass of wine that got my attention

Looking at the picture, you can tell that the top is pretty low cut.  Also, I wasn’t sure how those ruffles would look on me.  Well, here’s how it turned out:

Not feeling those ruffles?  Yeah, me either.  Fortunately, they were easy to add and remove.  Plus, the top is too low for my comfort.  I removed the ruffles, and added a second row of single crochet around the neck.

I used Claudia Handpaint Linen, and 100% linen sport weight yarn.

Much better!  I kind of like it with my vintage CAbi maxi skirt.

For more details, my Ravelry page, I’m Sewellen over there too!  Have a great weekend!
