A 2015 & 2016 Top 100 Knitting Blog!
Tina’s back modeling another summer top for me and I couldn’t be happier. The conditions were completely different this time around. Photos for the Knitty Fiftyfifty Shell were taken at Lake Tahoe in the middle of winter. It was 8 degrees out and a storm was on the way. This time we were hanging in San Diego on a perfect summer’s day. She was just back from a three week holiday in Italy and her happiness shines through the picture.
The Caliente Shell features 3 Nuances:
The Caliente Shell also includes a variation of the i-cord bind off. This one has 4 stitches so you can run an elastic cord through the center of it to customize the fit. We blogged about it on June 14th when we gave you some tips on knitting a contrasting color i-cord bind off with clean lines.
The top is knit in the round with an easy-to-follow stitch pattern and a lot of detailed instructions. If you’re a new knitter, it’s a good project to tackle for your first garment. If you’re an experienced knitter, you’ll enjoy the new techniques and be able to power through the main body knitting.
