Lillian Top Knitting Kit
The Lillian Top is a truly versatile and fabulous garment. Originally designed as a top, it can also be worn as a poncho, a strapless dress and even a fish-tail skirt! Lillian is an intricate knit and is suitable for the experienced knitter. It is advisable to knit the Fantasia Cowl before making Lillian as it is a great introduction to the stitch and shaping.
