Advanced Beginner - For those knitters who are ready to learn some new skills or stitch combinations. Stitches include: basic drop stitches, mattress seaming.
Notes From the Designer:
•Cumulus is a quick weekend knit project that adds interest and excitement to your wardrobe. This top features sections of simple openwork stitches and basic drop stitches with a combination of Garter Stitch and Stockinette Stitch backgrounds designed to keep things interesting while you knit.
•Simple seaming creates an open shoulder design that can be easily altered for those who wish to make their tee in a more traditional style. Slit seams on each side and a longer length on the back make this a fun and flirty piece that is perfect for layering as temperatures fluctuate. In keeping with the customization theme of this design, I have included 8 sizes ranging from bust size 32” to bust size 60” with 2” of positive ease.
•Rectangular pieces are knit flat from the bottom up and then seamed together using the mattress stitch with guidance from the schematic diagrams included in this pattern.

From the designer: Light and airy tops are always fun to wear in warmer months and to layer as the weather turns cooler. I really like simple shapes that are easy to make combined with unique features. For this design, I chose to use the popular open shoulder look. This style is so versatile that you can wear it for a dressy night on the town or you can wear it to the beach over your favorite swimsuit. This is a perfect piece for layering with your favorite tank top as well.

Beautiful and soothing knit.
Beautiful and satisfying knit.
It looks lovely and I am excited to start on it.
Basically I think it's A beautiful pattern. Chandi you make such wonderful pattern selections.
Beautiful yarn! Have not started on my project, but know it will or at least I hope it will be beautiful!
I feel like O'Hare airport with projects backed up til the cows come home. I have so much yarn and patterns not started or begun and not completed, but I am a yarn addict ... what can I say. But your patterns are at the top of my list.
Great summer pattern.
It's a very pretty and airy garment which will be perfect for the upcoming summer months. I plan to knit this for my daughter. Thanks for the freebie.
Eager to make this lovely sweater. Hoping that I will succeed, though I plan to close the shoulders - the cold-shoulder look is not for me. Thank you for another great inspiration!
Feel happy eager to get started...
Haven't knitted this yet but love the look of this for the summer. I have some expression fiber arts yarn to use. I will take Chandi's tip and close the top of the shoulders.
I really like this pattern I need a pattern for the summer and I have found the one I want to make
