Look at My Holes

is a top down, seamless raglan crop top with a simple lace repeat creating large holes all around the garment. The combination of large needles and the lace motif make this an incredibly low yardage pattern. Perfect for layering, this top is designed to be worn with coordinating tank top, AsFriendsTank (above) . Look at My Holes also looks cool on its own, but for the full effect of the Look At My Holes As Friends Set you need to make both! Like all of Jessie Mae’s patterns, it is size inclusive.

Ardent

Ardent is a striking yet simple introduction to intarsia colour-work and features a double-neck, ruffled short sleeves on a drop shoulder, and folded hems. The fit is boxy with extra ease and a lowered back hem, with split sides for movement. If you prefer cleaner lines, you can skip the ruffles.

The top is worked flat, beginning at the front hem and worked up to the shoulders, then down to the back hem. Stitches are then picked up around the armhole for the ruffled sleeve.
The front is vertically colour-blocked in 2 colours, while the back features thick stripes that border a semicircle worked in a third contrasting colour, reminiscent of a deconstructed sunburst.

Fine Lines

Fine Lines is a happy, fun play with color and ribbing that takes me back to Twiggy and summers in the late 60’s when everyone was wearing ribbed tops called “Poor Boys”!

Knit all in-one-piece from the top-down, Fine Lines uses an unusual construction, adding extra length on the BACK sts, so that there is no need for short-rows along the neckline. As a result, the BACK striping is somewhat different from the front, which adds a bit more fun to the pullover. The pattern also features an interesting bust dart detail that adds a bit more ease in the front over the bust, and it can be customized to one of 3 lengths — cropped, waist length or hip length (sleeve lengths are varied accordingly).
