Victory Twinset Top

  • The Victory Twinset Top pattern is the perfect beginner knit – with a simple construction and all-over ribbed stitch, it knits up almost effortlessly! Negative ease is used to create a close-fitting ‘t-shirt’ style top with the rib designed to stretch over the body. Contrasting stripes are worked across the yoke to add interest and set-in short sleeves are then worked to match.

    The top is knitted in separate flat pieces which are then sewn together, and has been designed to match the Victory Twinset Cardigan, however it is a great piece to include in any wardrobe – vintage or otherwise, and with or without its matching cardigan.

    Victory Twinset Top is knitted using Bluem Sock, a fingering weight yarn, worsted spun with a high twist making it perfect for socks. The Bluefaced Leicester yarn is a soft but resilient fibre and combined with a small amount of nylon, it creates the perfect fabric for socks. The yarn shows off texture, cables and lace to great effect and the fibre combination takes colour beautifully. Shown here in shades Buttermilk and Room Of My Own.

    Our model Theodora is shown wearing the first size 71-81cm (28-32in).

    The pattern includes instructions for eight sizes to fit chest measurements between 71cm (28in) and 157cm (62in) and contains clear written instructions plus a comprehensive schematic diagram and sizing chart.
