Enchanting In Black and White

  • Enchanting In Black and White is a delightful, delicate top pattern which was first published in the late 1930s. It features a solid coloured body knitted in stocking stitch which contrasts dramatically with a lace yoke knitted using a single strand of laceweight mohair yarn. Lacy puff sleeves with contrasting cuffs complete the look. This fabulous top is knitted flat in separate pieces and then sewn together.

    Enchanting in Black and White is knitted using Susan Crawford Breeze, a lightweight wool-cotton blend in shade Charcoal and Susan Crawford Mist, a laceweight mohair and silk blend in shade Mallow.

    Our model Miranda is shown wearing the second size to fit chest 81-86cm (32-34in).

    The pattern includes instructions for four sizes to fit chest measurements between 71cm (28in) and 112cm (44in) and contains clear written instructions plus a comprehensive schematic diagram and sizing chart.
