I was given a gift card to Needles In the Hay for my birthday, about two years ago, from a friend who knew that I love to knit (a great gift idea)! I wasn’t quite sure what to get and started imagining what I might like to knit. I had bought a pattern book for myself around Christmas time that year and had an idea that I might try something for the spring. The book was Stitch’n Bitch Superstar Knitting: Go beyond the basics by Debbie Stoller. The pattern is called Tulip Top by Laura Grutzeck.
This spring/summer sweater is made of cotton yarn and didn’t take long to knit. This was my first attempt at a fitted garment. I think it turned out nicely!
