Red Blush


Red Blush is a light-weight and airy top, simple with pretty details. Its deep V-neck, discrete fitting as well as the smock pleats that falls just right on the hips make it a very feminine piece, all the while being easy to wear every day. A good basics, to knit using different yarns or colours, with ou without sleeves! Actually, you can find inspiration on the pattern’s Ravelry page 😉

This top is knitted from the top to the bottom. You first cast-on the back stitches, and shape the shoulders using short rows. Then you pick up and knit stitches on each shoulder to shape the front and the sleeves. This way, you can work the whole garment in one piece until you separate body and sleeves.

Note: this pattern contains instructions to work short or long sleeves.
