Simple knitted cap sleeve top.

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well? it looks like we are in for a lovely Bank Holiday here in my part of the UK the sun is shining and it is warm, what more could we ask for.

I have a knitting project to show, this one is for me and it is nice and simple.

using self patterning DK yarn on 4mm needles. I am writing this pattern myself as I go along beginning with rib k1, p1, then garter stitch for the main body and as I start the armhole I add a Lace work stitch pattern which is a 4 row pattern and quite easy to memorise, but keep a row counter handy as you knit.

As I mentioned the yarn is DK but I purchased this on our local market so I couldn't say where you might be able to purchase this sorry.

Next I have a couple of books to show you the first one is 201 knitting motifs, blocks, and ideas by Nicki Trench,

I really love this one, it has lovely ideas and the library of stitch patterns and pictures are quite clear  and easy to follow.

You can buy this at most good retailers and I have seen it on Amazon and at Search Press.

The second one is for beginner crochet and quite handy as a reference book for an intermediate too.

and you will never guess how much I bought this for £3.00 at the Works Book Shop, now that is a bargain wouldn't you agree.

So that is all for now, I will try and update some pictures of the WIP cross stitch for mini black cat calendar next time.

bye for now and happy stitching or knitting xx
