Frost Flowers Top

Well, it's done, Frost Flowers Top, from a pattern by Lankakomera that I found on Ravelry. I hope it fulfils all the criteria of the knitting competition - sleeveless, goes over the head, lacy but without long loops....The rules did say that a crochet edging was acceptable, but I felt that it looked unfinished, so I knitted a scallop edging for the neck. I used ladder stitch to sew the side seams and am pleased that they look more or less invisible:
Outside view.
And inside, where there is a slight ridge, but nothing too obtrusive. It will be months before the judging is done, but at least now I have done my bit.


  1. The pattern has turned out a treat, I like how the pattern scallops at the bottom.

  2. I like the hem too! - it seems to flow right on from the Frost flowers. I've never seen this pattern knitted into a garment, it's been a good choice of pattern for this top. Good luck in the competition.

  3. Beautiful !!! The seams are not visible. Love the colour & texture.
    Wishing you all the very best in the competition :-)

  4. Hmm, maybe there will be a competition in MN with the winning submission mysteriously disappearing....

    Goodness, it's gorgeous- you have done a marvelous job and the ladder seam is perfect- wow!!!
