YARN The After Party 35 - Term Time Top

By Pat Strong

The lace rib stitch pattern and the luxurious, sparkling Stardust yarn make this simple silhouette top a glamorous addition to your wardrobe. The Term Time Top is worked in two pieces and has a simple silhouette, with a slash neck and garter stitch borders at the armhole edge. The knitting pattern describes sizes S until XL.

For one top you will need 2 or 3 balls of Scheepjes Stardust (depending on size). The example has been made using Scheepjes Stardust 657 Aquarius.

The pattern is available in print via your Scheepjes Dealer and available via Ravelry.

About Pat Strong
This beautiful design comes from Pat Strong. Living in a tiny Scottish village near Loch Lomond, the beautiful countryside inspires her with its changing colours and textures. Her Gran taught her to crochet when she was about 6 years old but, unfortunately never told her what the stitches were called! Pat has always had the crafting bug and did a fashion textile course at her local college. Totally smitten, she went on to do an MA in Fashion Textile Design at a Scottish University. Now she designs for knitting and crochet magazines, has a small studio/wool shop and provides technical support to other designers. You can find Pat Strong on Ravelry.

Scheepjes Stardust
Of course, you can knit the Term Time Top in any colour Scheepjes Stardust you like. This soft and gentle blended yarn has just enough mohair to be soft, but not fluffy. Stardust contains fine sparkling fibers that add an elegant shimmer to your knitting and crochet projects when they catch the light.

Scheepjes have worked very hard to ensure that this yarn is soft without being scratchy like some sparkle yarns can be. Stardust is available in 9 solid and 5 long variegated shades, each named after a star constellation.
