a cocoknit summer garment

Finally, a finished summer knit to show you! A seamless knit with eyelet detailing on the flared sleeves and back and who doesn't love an hour glass shape! These shots show the piece closed, but I equally like Sabine worn open and swinging for those times I feel a bit more "Free Spirited"!
Sabine is my second Cocoknits pattern to knit (Petra knit in Noro was the first). Their patterns are so well written and both of my selections were very simple and wearable designs. It would be most difficult to pick a favorite of the two, simply because I love them both! Anyhoo........I don't really have to choose and can enjoy one during those warm summer months and one for colder days.

You simply would not believe how soft and wearable the Knit One Crochet Too Babyboo fiber is. I knew I was liking this yarn during the knit process, but find it to be even more fabulous once soaked and blocked. Hard to imagine one being disappointed with this yarn.

This is me showing off the back eyelet detailing!

Just pretty!

I luv Cocoknits patterns as she does have great instructions, even though I've never done one of her garments...yet. Just over here wearing her Malabrigo Loafers right now ;o)

Great garment! Great knit job!!
