1 Smock Top Sweater Designed by Audrey Knight Skill Level: Intermediate Orignially published in Knotions Magazine Copyright AudKnits
2 Smock Top Sweater The Smock Top Sweater features a form-flattering ribbed body topped by feminine smocking. The turtleneck is knit with ever-increasing sizes of needles to drape softly at the neck line. Knit from the bottom up, the body s 2x2 ribbing flows seamlessly into the smocking pattern that adorns the yoke. At the top of the smocking, the ribs flow up to match at the shoulder, making for a pretty join. The merino content of Rowan Classic Yarns Cashsoft DK creates a soft sweater, while the cashmere gives it warmth without excess weight. The traditional style of the Smock Top Sweater lends itself well to dressing up (maybe with pretty black slacks?) or dressing down (paired with jeans for cozy fall and winter gatherings). Its versatility makes it useful in a time when we are all trying to get the most out of our garments. I hope you ll find this sweater a joy to create and comfortable to wear. Finished Measurements Finished Bust Size 30 (34, 38, 41.5, 45.5, 49.5, 53) / 76 [86.5, 96.5, 105.5, 115.5, 125.5, 135.5] cm Length 22.5 (23, 23.5, 23.75, 24, 24.5, 25) / 57 [58.5, 59.5, 60.5, 61, 62, 63.5] cm Very-close fitting. Shown in size 34 /86.5 cm Yarn Rowan Yarns Classic Cashsoft DK (57% extra fine merino, 33% acrylic microfiber, 10% cashmere, 142 yards/130 meters/50 grams) ball band gauge for purposes of substitution: 22 sts/30 rows = 4 (refer to Pattern Gauge for knitting the sweater); Shade Mist; 9 (10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15) balls Needles 1 pair US #5 (3.75 mm) straight needles 1 24-inch US #5 [60 cm] circular (optional) needles 1 set each: US #5 (3.75 mm), US #6 (4 mm), and US #7 (4.5 mm) double-pointed needles
3 Notions Stitch holders, tapestry needle Gauge 25 sts/28 rows = 4 [10 cm] in k2p2 ribbing pattern, with US #5 (3.75 mm) needles, blocked slightly stretched Pattern Notes The pattern is knitted from the bottom up. The cast-on stitch count includes two selvedge stitches for use in seaming. Neck is shaped by using three different sizes of needles for a nice drape that doesn't ride up the neck. Some wraps on the short-row wraps will not go all the way around the stitch as usual. They will work out as you work the completion row. Special Abbreviations yb = Yarn in back ssp = Slip two sts knitwise, one at a time. Keeping each st twisted, return one at a time to left needle. Purl these two sts together through the back loops.
