Mythica Sweater Pattern
by Beverly S.
Price: $6.00 - Ravelry Download
Knit in three directions, Mythica has some complexity, but isnít too
difficult. Start with the cable band and work around the middle - grafting
the ends together for easy knitting in the round. Pick up around the top
edge of the band for the bodice and knit up. Then, pick up around the bottom
edge of the band, and knit the skirt Ė which, of course, allows you to try
on the top to determine the perfect length for your body! There is always
something new to do, so it is hard to get bored while knitting Mythica!
The bust is shaped with short rows for cup sizes C-DD. Finishing details,
such as grafting the cable band in pattern, a sewn bind off for the hem, and
applied I-cord around the neck and arms add a little polish. And the only
seams are at the shoulders!
Recommended for those with intermediate to advanced knitting skills. A
beginner might find too many new skills to tackle with this top.
