Devon Top Knitting Kit
Devon is a fabulous lightweight blouson top with cable detail through to the hem and a nerve racking drop stitch to create the lace ladder! The shoulders and neckline are edged in moss stitch, to create a romantic, floating garment that is pretty and feminine to wear. For the more adventurous novice, Devon is a great way to understand how cables are formed as the twists are uniformly one way; for the more experienced knitter, the scariest thing is making sure you drop the right stitch to form the ladder effect!
