Product Details

Skill Level- Easy

This top follows the classic sleeveless sweater style, and it's available in a wide range of colours in our alpaca wool lightweight DK range, all sourced from British and Irish alpaca farms. Just pick a colour for the main body, and then a colour for the edging.

The Design

We've called it the Southwold, because this sleeveless top uses Dot Stitch throughout, which brought to mind the scattered pebbles over sand effect of the Southwold beach. It is designed as two panels, front and back. There are two options for finishing the neckline and armholes (traditional ribbing or a folded over edge). If you prefer, you can knit the whole thing in the round if you prefer, and we have included instructions for this. If you are knitting flat, you can choose to buy 4mm and 4.5mm needles, or if you are knitting in the round, choose the circular needles. 

Size and Yarn Quantities

The design is intended to be well-fitted with a 2 – 5 cm positive ease, but the actual fitting is up to you. To choose your size and best fit, we recommend measuring your favourite jumper and using that size. If you prefer a shorter style, you can reduce the length before the armholes start (see chart for measurements).
