Giotto Top

We all fell in love with Solare, last winter, a new yarn from the Tahki Stacy Charles line.  Solare is a cotton blend with a great nubby texture.  It knits up into a beautiful fabric so even a simple knit looks terrific. 

In fact, it looks best in simple shapes, like this top worked in two colors of Solare.

The design is called Giotto, and it showcases the current color blocking trend in a simple flattering silhouette lets the yarn take center stage.  I was thinking I should knit one up when our shop sample arrived this week.  I couldn't help trying it on.  The pattern photo styling is great - a little bit dressy with a nice skirt or slacks - but this top is also something you can dress down and wear with jeans.  I'm not a big fan of selfies,  but I really want to show you how cute it looks with jeans too.

I was thinking you could wear it as a layering piece, either over a white cotton blouse, or under a jacket.  It's a quick knit and takes just 8 skeins of Solare.  Choose either light and dark blue or classic black and white.  We have it available as a kit on line, or you can stop by the shop to see the top in person get started on yours right away. But don't wait, because this yarn will not last long!
