Devon Top Knitting Pattern
Devon Top is a clever design using large needles and dropped stitches to create a floaty knit with an open texture. Teh fitted cable rib along the hem can be pulled up at the waist to create a blouson effect or pulled down over the hip. The top is worked in the round and the dropping of stitches creates a moment of thrill at the end! The shoulders and neckline are edged in moss stitch.
