I love how simple, yet stylish this top looks. Working two yarns together allows for so many different colour combinations. I want to make up several of them. I think it would look good with either side facing out. If you are careful with your seams you could easily make this top reversible.

I can't get to the pattern, from here or from Ravelry.

Hello scasey1106 3018865! We have just verified the link to the pattern is working properly. If you click the pink "Click here for knitting pattern" button above, you should be able to view the pattern in full on the blogger's site. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

delightful little sweater - ideal for summer or in fall or spring with a jacket - and I have the yarn sitting here waiting for it -- for once I am ahead of the project ) and I too like the instructions for the finished hem - may be able to use it again in another project for a more finished look

This is a sweet little sweater that will work nicely under a suit jacket or on its own with a pair of slacks or jeans. The pattern is nicely detailed and provides photo instructions for making a beautifully finished turned him instead the usual cast on/bind off methods. This top could be a classic in anyone's wardrobe.

I was excited to see another pattern for my 12 3/4 mm needles, but alas the pattern actually calls for 3 different lengths of size 4 mm needles.
