Chonita Top - a knitting pattern
Named after a lovely friend of mine, Chonita top is here, ready for you to CO.
The top is worked in two ways: the lace yoke is worked bottom up, while the body and sleeves are worked from top to bottom. Fun and cool to make ;)
This weekend you can see the top in two versions during Woollinn Dublin Festival at Martin’s Lab booth. See you there!
