Introducing: Laverne

Laverne's a sassy young lady--she's got contrast trim, a scooped neckline, and a bright corsage applique that says "I'm not afraid to cause a little stir in the stacks."

As shown here in size Medium, Laverne uses three balls of Crystal Palace Kid Merino and less than one ball of Rowan Kidsilk Haze (plus a few scraps of sock yarn, 10-20 yds each, for the flowers). Size range is XS-3X (30-54" bust), and variations for 3/4 length sleeves and short row bust shaping to fit fuller figures are included.

Pattern is worked from the top down in stockinette on circular needles, so there's practically no seaming or finishing after the knitting's done. If you're a quick knitter, you can crank Laverne out in less than a week.

Buy this pattern on Ravelry or directly from this site! Just $5.00 for the PDF download...

I love Laverne. Also, who is not hap-hap-happy about another knitting blog? Looking forward to the next post and pattern.
