Service Description

Odemira Top is a lightweight, airy, sleeveless summer top knitted top-down seamlessly, allowing for length adjustments as needed. It starts at the back, with shaping for the shoulders, then it is worked flat until the armhole shaping. Next, the front is knitted flat, shaping the neckline and armholes at the same time. The body is worked in the round, with a central decorative motif that runs down, from the top, borders the neckline, and continues until the hem. Finishings for the neckline and sleeves are worked last. Techniques Used: German Twisted Cast-On, left-leaning and right-leaning increases, Standard Bind-Off. The pattern is available in 9 adult sizes. You will need 465-890 yards of DK weight yarn and a circular needle of 4 mm/US 6, or the size needed to obtain a gauge of 20 sts/30 rows/inch; Circular needle of 3.5 mm/US 4 (or two sizes smaller than the main needle) for working the hem, cuffs and the neckline. Get a copy of the pattern here: Materials can be purchased from Lovelyarns with your 10% class discount. Yarn must be ordered at least 14 DAYS before class begins to ensure that your supplies arrive on time. We will create a personalized sweater pattern for you based on YOUR measurements and YOUR gauge! Homework: Make a 6-8inch swatch in stockinette with a needle that gives you a gauge of 20 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch worked in the round and after wet blocking. To do a "speed swatch" that emulates knitting in the round check out this video: DO NOT knit a garter stitch edge and instead of binding off your swatch, just slip the stitches onto a length of waste yarn. Bring in a top that fits you the way you want your newly knit top to fit you. We will use these measurements to determine the desired measurements for your sweater.
