|Job type||Test knit|
Artemisia is an elegant Top with a relaxed A-line silhouette that is worked almost entirely in Stockinette stitch. It features a lace & cable stitch pattern (not hard to work) around the V-neckline in contrast color yarn, that decorates the upper front part of the garment in a beautiful way. The main color yarn (MC) is a light fingering weight yarn and the contrast color yarn (CC) is a 4-ply yarn (fingering weight yarn would also work) so Artemisia can be worn year round.
Test knitters can choose a combination of yarns they like as long as they hit gauge.
The pattern includes instructions for a short and a long sleeve version (test knitters can chose which version they like to knit).
Please note that the pattern has been professionally tech edited.
