This original machine knitting design from Award Winning Designer Marianne Henio is for the Liliola Top. It comes from Marianne’s series of modern machine knitting designs. The summer top is a cross over front design and the front is asymmetrical which is very flattering on the hips. Marianne has embellished the design with a little cord with beaded ends to tie around the front crossover. This is removable so easy for washing!
The pattern book contains some great video instructions, INCLUDING Marianne’s new ‘no roll edging’ technique!
