WZZ1033 Two Delicate Lace Summer Tops
Vintage Knit Pattern PDF Z1033


KNITTING: These are  two absolutely exquisitely little creations from the late sixties; knitted lace tops in a standard double knitting/light worsted / 8ply. if you enjoy lace knitting these are quick little projects on largish needles. The pattern describes them as ‘mini tops you can “dash off easily”!’

One is really dainty, with a pearl button front opening from a high round neckline with has picot trimmed edges; the cut away sleeves armholes are also picot edged.  It is knitted in a 12 row lace /cable stitch pattern giving an unusual effect of vertical cartouches...

The second is a more traditional short sleeve sweater in a diamond effect; alternate rows are all purl-so only 6 to get used to.

Both tops are a cropped waist length with a deep ribbed waistband.

The model for the first ( peach ) top is beautiful Lorraine Chase - famous in the UK for her Campari commercial! I have several patterns with her modelling various knitwear creations, before her acting career took off.
