Original and innovative - the knitted bib top.

Added Dec 8, 2012

Aylesbury, Unite...






The top is made of low stretch knit jersey in charcoal.

The bib has been knitted separately (triple cable knit), following a pattern published in Burda magazine 12/2011 (the leather and wool bag). I have, in fact, used that pattern over and over again, including for a bag which has (sadly) never been finished.

I used satin bias binding for the neckline and a couple of nickel matt sequins for the cord and the neck.

The top has a butterfly shape and the shoulder line is in fact the fold of the fabric. I therefore only needed to use one stitch on each side of the top.

Happy to provide a sketch of my innovative pattern.

Material Notes

knit jersey, sequins, satin bias binding

    smart… it looks beautiful and new, never thought of knitting and added to a blouse. I might do that with a jacket too. :)

    Beautiful!! I love the details of the sequins and satin, and I especially love the knit bib. I would totally buy this top! You should consider selling them…its awesome!

    Soooo gooood!!! I just love it! Definitely gonna make one for myself! Do you happen to have the pattern for the blouse? (“Bat-sleeves” I suppose?) Or at least a photo with the sleeves stretched to the sides – I’d really appreciate it! Thanks for sharing! :)

    It is interesting, I had three people who contact me asking to order it. It looks simple, but I am not sure if I have the patience to knit three more bibs like that, it takes days and the yarn is soooo expensive :-(
