This is the top that I began on Tony's course at Metropolitan.
It is knitted in Grigna - and the plan was to wear it with my favourite Harris Tweed skirt.
Plan accomplished but it is so versatile I want to wear it all the time. These are just 8 ways that I have worn it so far.
This is 'as knitted' plus...
I added detail to the side and shoulder seams with ribbon yarn during the construction. Also I added detail across the back neck and buttons on the back neck too - see later.
This one is fastening the fronts to the buttons on the neck and one of my favourite ways to wear this.
Crossing the sides over gives a very different look.
As I am quite slim (?!) it is possible for me to fasten at the side too. I made some matching button closures for this.
and this is how it looks from the front
Or it can be fastened at the back:
and at the front it looks like this
I have made some matching corsage buttons, this is one view:
or with a square corsage using the other shoulder
and this is using a super scarf clip from Janna Hodson
so eight ways
I have still to explore the ties that I left underarm!
Thanks to Tony for such a great course - definitely got the creative machine knitting bug now.
