FO: Aubépine


Oh, how I love wearable knits! Aubépine is an elegant hip-length top featuring a V-neck, both in front and back, dolman short sleeves, and a delicate double stitch and cable stitch pattern. The garment consists in 2 identical panels sewn together and a picked-up neck band. Plus, it is easy to wear over a pair of jeans, a skirt or even leggings, with a belt to show that waist of yours! Knitted with Skein's Merino/Silk Sport yarn in Raku, this top is flowy and light but still keeps you warm.


This yarn, my friend, this yarn... first, the color is absolutely gorgeous. I mean, who would expect a variagated yarn to behave like that with a cable pattern? And the base (50% Merino, 50% Silk) takes blocking wonderfully!

The pattern is not yet written, but I gathered my notes and am working on it...

You couldn't look prettier! Sometimes I find that pullovers all start to look alike but you just designed a really different top that is also timeless. Kudos!

That is gorgeous! I really like the stitch pattern - it's a great match for that yarn. Your photos are also awesome - love the color contrast with the teal green in the first photo! : )
