Biscotte Yarns

Pretty in Pleats | Free pattern

How about a pretty and light top made of Cheval Blanc AMBRE yarn for the hot days of summer? A design signed by Andrea Yetman for Biscotte Yarns offered as a free download.♥

The Pretty in Pleats tank has been inspired by one of my favourite knit sweaters. It was a sweater that I knit a few years ago but kept reaching for and never wanted to put away for the warmer months. Knit with Cheval Blanc’s Ambre yarn gives this tank a beautiful drape! - Andrea

PATTERN NOTES

The Pretty in Pleats tank is knit bottom up in the round and then separates at the arm opening and knit back and forth. There are extra stitches for the front to accommodate decreasing for the pleats. The shoulder straps are binded off using the 3 needle bind off. Stitches are picked up for the neckline and the arm openings for a more polished look. The tank is more roomy around the mid section since there is no waist shaping. The sample is knit in size XS (32) and the mid section is still very flowy.

Jolie Camisole (Pretty in pleats)

J'ai fait la taille petite avec le fil Katia-Concept cotton-cashmere couleur 56 (gris pierre). L'ajustement est parfait
Patron sympathique à tricoter. Première fois que je faisais des plis et que je tricotais un chandail avec des aiguilles circulaires.
Modifiée légèrement le col. Plutôt satisfaite du résultat.
Il ne me reste plus qu'à en profiter!
Merci pour ce patron gratuit.
