Spring is definitely here, and so is the Bessie May Spring Designs – the newly hot off the needles Bessie May Honor – Zing and Zest ‘Swing’ Top, with vintage lemon zest button detailing emphasising the swish neck line.
Large, netting effect fabric, created by knitting using one very large needle, and one much smaller – fun to do, as well as creating a lovely elastic fabric, which drapes effectively for the ‘Swing’ design.
Perfect to wear on its own, or over a long sleeve top, so good for now, and when the summer arrives….
Here are the lovely zing and pastel shades of Bessie May Honor – so any colour combination would be fantastic. Can be made without the stripe, so two tone, by single colour for all the rib framing, and second colour for fabric, or just in a single colour all over, creating lots of different options, and effects.
The colour combination being inspired, by some material purchased in a thrift shop in the depth of winter, as a Spring reminder!…
