The name of the color used for this design is called “Music of the night”. The top "dancing in the night" was born to the rhythm of the music. A design with a ruffled hem reminiscent of flamenco dresses. A very feminine cut and flattering style for the silhouette.
An original design by Stephanie Voyer offered free of charge by Biscotte. So are you ready to start dancing?
Louise Robert Design Collection – ALGUA MARINA (70% silk, 30% seacell – 250m; 275 yds / 100g) – 3 (3, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5) skeins in the color « Music of the night ».
Circular needles of 3.75mm (US#5) - Cable of 80 cm (32’’) or size needles necessary to obtain gauge.
GAUGE : 24 sts and 28 rows = 10 cm in Stockinette Stitch after blocking. (see the important note below)
ATTENTION : Pieces knit with silk yarn tend to grow a lot when wet. It is therefore imperative to validate the gauge of your swatch after washing / blocking. In addition, if you hesitate between two sizes, choose the smaller of the two.
Therefore, you may notice that the measurements requested in the pattern will not be the same as those requested in the diagram that you will use for blocking.
SIZES | XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL)NOTES
The Dancing in the night top is knit in the round from the waist to the armholes. Thereafter, you will separate the back and the front to work back and forth for each row. You will attach them to the shoulders with a 3 needle bind off. Finally, you will pick up the stitches in the cast on row to make the waist band as well as the twist at the waist. This strip will be knit perpendicular to the body.
