Lace Sleeved Top

Navy Top

For this top I created two patterns using Knitware. One using the row and stitch tensions for the stocking stitch and one using the row and stitch tensions for the lace pattern.

I then followed the stocking stitch instructions to knit the back and front and then followed the lace instructions to knit the sleeves.

Here are the two sets of instructions:

The inspiration for this top came from an old edition of Modern Knitting from the mid 80s which is where I found the lace punchcard pattern:

    Lovely pattern, I would love to make this but can’t see any list of abbreviations for the pattern, being new to machine knitting I’m not always sure what is meant! (I have a Knitmaster 321)

    That’s brilliant, thank you!
