Pistachio Lace Raglan

click to enlargeYarn:  3 balls of Cotton Ease in Pistachio

Tools:  #6, #7, & #8, circulars, F & H crochet hooks

Gauge:  4.5 sts/in largest needles

Pattern:  my own via Barbara Walker's Knitting from the Top v-neck raglan with bust/waist shaping, fern/vine lace stitch, garter stitch edge, picot bind off, simple crochet flower - all stitch patterns from the Harmony Guide series

Opinions:  I like everything about this top, but I'm not happy with the extra bagginess in the underarm area. If I did it over again, I would either cast on fewer underarm stitches, or make fewer sleeve increases in the yoke.


  1. goodness this top is CUUUUUUTE!!!!

  2. Wow, what a gorgeous top! I really love the color too!

  3. Very pretty! Great job -- and I agree that the color is just wonderful.

  4. I love it - how creative you are.

  5. Ok this is really cute. You could wear it again and again do to it's simplicity.
