“My teacher asked my favorite color. … I said ‘Rainbow’…. and I was punished to stand out of my class.”
― Saket Assertive

I found the quote used for this design to be the quintessential Dreamer response. Dreamer Fibre Muses live and breathe color, and I created this design as a celebration of that. By keeping the body of the top simple (it is knit in either stockinette or garter stitch), it allows the color to take center stage. So I highly recommend finding rainbow yarn in your stash to use for this!

This is a sleeve-less top, worked top-down. First worked flat, using raglan shaping to form the front and back pieces, then joined in the round for the rest of the body. An accent yarn is used for finishing touches and the straps.

  • 1 skein in Verdigris and 2 skeins in Unicorn Poop.
  • This is an extremely soft and smooth yarn with plenty of elasticity. Elasticity in the fiber is important for this project as it is fit fitting to the body.
