Craftsy Brioche Class

Campbell and 2nd

C2 bike 2

Named for the gorgeous Lorna’s Laces colorway, Campbell, named for a Chicago street, and for the location of the photoshoot on Birmingham’s 2nd Avenue North, Campbell & 2nd is a sleek boatneck pullover with asymmetrical lace detailing at the shoulder, and optionally, at the hip.

Knit seamlessly from the top down, this lightweight pullover features sleek shaping and gorgeous lace details. Sleeves are a raglan/set-in hybrid, increasing on both the body and sleeve sections at first, then increasing on just the sleeve sections. A brief series of short rows help create a slight dip in the front neck.

For proper sizing, a finished bust size that provides from 2” negative ease or up to 1” of positive ease compared to actual full bust measurement is recommended. I will be adding a post on adjusting shaping and other possible pattern modifications for more in depth information on adjusting fit on bust, waist, and hip shaping; look for it in late Feb (Have questions about custom fitting? Let me know and I’ll cover as much as I can in the post!).

    What a beautiful top. I can’t wait to buy the pattern and knit one up for myself.
