South Shore Knit Top 18" Doll Clothes Knitting Pattern

1 review   |  

This lacy layering top, by Clarisse's Closet, has an openwork crochet-look, but is 100% knit. It can be worn over a tank top, dress, or swim suit, or even as an under-layer such as under a jumper. The tee features a simple lace stitch pattern that has only one unique stitch worked across every fourth row, and a carefully designed neckline, which uses slipped stitches for a smooth edge that doesn’t require any extra finishing. The dolman sleeves are knit in a T-shape with the body, and hang on the shoulder in a casual drape. The top can also be worn with the buttons in the front as a summery cardigan.

The top is knit in one piece starting from the front bottom edge, then divided at the neckline for the right and left shoulders to be worked separately. Each side is knit over the shoulder, and down the back, with no shoulder seam. The sides are stitched up to finish the top, which closes in the back with four buttons.

Shown with Skinny Jeans and the Sutton Pinafore Dress.
