Spring is sprung and it’s time to get your summer knitting on the needles.
I am a fan of Jean Paul Gaultier. Though famous for pointy bosomed bodices and men in skirts, every collection has something of interest for me. This lacy tee suggests the idea of using different lace stitches in light spring colours.
The overall ball gown is, of course, optional, though surely the headgear is a must….
The Gemma Pattern by Andrea Black only uses one lace pattern, but creates a similar lovely delicate Spring-time feeling with a light colour palette, mesh on the upper yoke and simple details.
For a less structured look, Erin Kate Archer’s Cancun Lace Top Pattern plays with multiple lace stitch patterns in a simple shape. It looks like a very cool knitting sampler and really wearable.
It is a bank holiday weekend and I hope you enjoy some quality knitting time!
