My talented buddy, Laura Nelkin, has designed an adorable stripey top, Tasca, using our Woolens yarn in a stunning color combination. I have known Laura for many years now and she is a bright spot in the knitting world. She is a renowned knitting instructor with 8 classes on Craftsy, she has her own retreats, she started doing knitting travel tours abroad and she is a fantastic designer. She also designs and creates kits for innovative knit jewelry that incorporates beads. It’s so pretty and fun. Laura has a lot to offer plus she’s a joyful, fun, energetic and super positive person.
This design, Tasca, is part of a collection (the pattern can be purchased individually, though). The top is worked side-to-side and there’s a little pocket added to the side panel which I love. Click here to see the pattern information on Ravelry. The pattern is not included in the kit. If interested, you’ll need to purchase the pattern directly from Laura.
We’ve pulled together some sweet little kits to go along with the Tasca Sport pattern. Laura advised that if you’d like to make it longer, as the sample is a cropped version, you should just order a size up for the kit.
Here is Laura’s description:
"Tasca is a seamless tunic with pockets knit with my unique side-to-side construction!!! Tasca means “pocket” in Italian… I invented a way to incorporate pockets into your tunic’s side panels.
Laura is starting a Knitalong for Tasca on September 1st, 2020, if interested!
