I have been thinking about the Giselle Top pattern since I purchased it at Stitches West. I could never find the perfect yarn for it until..... I discovered Seduce. It is a new yarn made by Berocco and it is just so pretty. It is an interesting blend of silk, linen, rayon, and nylon. It is kind of wiry but soft at the same time. I immediately swatched for Giselle and it was a perfect match. I washed my gauge swatch and was pleasantly surprised by how the yarn softened and how the stitches smoothed. The drape was beautiful. I knew that this yarn would work up wonderfully in a light summer top.
The great thing about this pattern is that it is knit from the top down. (NO SEAMS!)
I can try it on as I go to see if it is fitting me correctly.
I simply just slipped the stitches from the circular needle onto some waste yarn.
I really like it so far. I think that I chose the right size too. Phew!
I always seem to choose the wrong size!!!
Seduce produces this slightly inconsistent fabric that reminds me of raw silk. I can't wait until I get this pattern submission knitting out of the way so that I can get back to this project!
