Those lovely ovals separate slightly and open finally, giving a glimpse of what’s inside.

I have one more post to share on Reykjavik, but before I do, I wanted to get going on something I've been planning for this spring. As the weather's started to turn warmer (or not, depending on where you live), it's clear knitter's minds are turning to spring and summer!

Sommer sleeveless top
This lovely sleeveless top has an easy fit making it perfect for warm weather or a great layering piece for cooler weather. Worked in the bottom up in one piece it looks simple but makes the most of texture for a challenging knit that will quickly become a wardrobe staple.
Sonora pattern by Courtney Kelley
Sonora is knit in one piece from the bottom up to the underarms. The yoke is then worked back and forth and the shoulders bound off using a 3-Needle Bind Off. The sleeves are then picked up and worked in the round.
The details are the gems in this chic, versatile tee: sophisticated I-cord finishes the neckline and sleeves, the deep scooped back is elegant and sexy, and a delicate lacy ribbing edges the bottom. Designed with just a hint of waist shaping and seams to add structure, it looks great dressed down with jeans, or dressed up however you like.
