Z isn’t two until the 31st, but today I got the feeling that this top must be knit, so I cast it on. I bought this Jo Sharp Soho Summer DK cotton yarn last summer at my LYS last summer deeply discounted, and I meant to do this sooner, but you know…time escapes me! I almost forgot about the yarn completely until I had to rearrange my stash to stuff in some new acquisitions. Then I saw it and I knew it had to be a top right now or it definitely wouldn’t be enough yarn for a larger size. What am I making? A mini Gemini top. I cast on 88 stitches and worked back and forth. I knew I would have to leave some kind of slit in the back that could be buttoned to make sure her noggin could fit through the space. I used a size 4 needle and worked the lace pattern for 10 rows only. After that I increased on all sections on the RS and only the body sections on the WS till I had 38 sts on each sleeve section. Then I stopped increasing on the sleeve and increased on the body sections, from that point on the RS only. I have 50 sts for the front and 50 for the back and 38 for each sleeve. That puts the chest size around 22″. I knit until the armhole depth was about 3.75″. So far this has been a super quick project. I will likely mirror the one I made and leave the sleeves with a bare stockinette edge. This is one of my favorite tops to wear, so I’m very excited for Z to have one too!
