• summerknits Rendezvous Top

    The Rendezvous Top is a beautiful summer top with a lace pattern on the yoke, knitted in a lovely summer yarn. It is knitted from the top down, with circular yoke increases included in the chart. You might have seen the Rendezvous Sweater before, which was created for the book Modern Embroidery On Knitwear and Other Clothing, and we have now created a lighter summer version of the sweater. The fun lace pattern is almost addicting, so the top almost knits itself. If you want to add a little something extra, you can embroider on some beautiful summer flowers! You can either go for a soft, neutral color, or go for a bright color such as cobalt blue, coral, or a statement green, which gives a really fresh detail to the summer top.

    About the pattern The Rendezvous Top is knitted from the top down, so you begin with the neckband, and the yoke is formed according to a chart. Afterwards, the sleeve stitches are put to rest while the body is knitted in stockinette stitch. We recommend to use the Italian cast-off method or another elastic cast-off on the body, which will give you a comfortable result for a summer top, since cotton yarn can often cause the cast-off edge to be tight when the normal cast-off method is used. Finally the sleeves are knitted, one at a time. As long as you don’t cast off too tightly on the sleeves, it’s fine to cast off knit over knit and purl over purl, but you can choose to use the Italian cast-off here as well. After washing, the top expands a bit in width due to the lace pattern on the yoke, which can cause it to lose some length compared to before washing.

  • The Merci Cardigan is a beautiful, timeless cardigan with that little extra something. The cardigan is as light as a feather, soft, and comfortable to wear, thanks to the yarn. The cardigan has a wide and cropped fit, while it is easily adjusted. As a result, the cardigan gets a desired length. Knitted from the top down, back and forth in stockinette stitch, with a beautiful lace pattern on the front. Stitches are first increased for the body, then for the sleeves, thus giving the cardigan a great fit. Then you work raglan increases.

  • Sagveien Cushion The Sagveien cushion is knitted in the round on circular needles, from the bottom up. It is closed at the top using grafting, a technique with a seamless result. The cables are easily created without a cable needle in this yarn; see the video of how we do this at @plystreco. At the top you graft the cushion together, which gives a beautiful and tidy finish. You can choose to sew snaps into the bottom, but we chose to omit this because the cushion stays in good shape with regular airing out. Spot-clean as needed. Remember to knit a gauge swatch before you start to get the right size! This pattern is in English.
