A few months ago we sent out 1000 yards of ModeSock in Lazurite for a new design for Holla Knits! Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. That lovely blue sock yarn has turned into the StoneyBrook Top, a light, airy sweater perfect for spring and summer. It’s youthful and fun, and looks great with leggings as pictured, or would look good with a pair of jeans or even a short skirt.
We really like the openwork on the side and on the top, and the asymmetrical line is flattering for many body types.
Our yarn used is ModeSock, a delicious 3-ply fingering weight yarn, 60% superwash merino, 30% bamboo, and 10% nylon. Perfect for softness, easy care & strength. ModeSock is available in 100g/ 382 yard skeins, so three skeins would be needed for StoneyBrook.
The top was knitted in Lazurite, a strong blue with overtones of blue/black. We can see it knitted up in so many other colors as well. Kathleen would knit this in A Study in Pink, and Annie would probably choose Epidote or Hershel Greene.
Would you like a copy of the pattern? Leave a comment on this post telling us the color you would use to knit StoneyBrook, and you will be entered to win a copy of the pattern. We’ll use the random number generator to choose the winner on Wednesday April 16th.
