NEW PATTERN – OFF THE RADAR


Don't you just love a good dose of short rows on a circular yoke? Off the Radar was published last year in Simply Knitting magazine as Go Green! and has since become one of my favourite tops to wear.



Knitted in the round from the bottom up it sports a broken rib, cap sleeves, circular yoke, and yes, some short rows to take that crew neck to the next level. The sample was knitted using Fyberspates Scrumptious DK, that makes it extra [England :-) ]summery, and nice to wear.
