At Long Last, I Present Linea

Thanks for your patience.  Life has thrown a few curve balls that have prevented me from offering Linea as quickly as I had hoped. 

Since this is the first time I will be charging for a pattern, I have set up and account to accept payment through Paypal.  I have yet to work out all of the geeky bits.  So for now, after I have received your payment, I will e-mail the PDF file to you.  You can expect the file in less than 24 hours.



Linea is a lacy summer top.  Fabric knit from bamboo yarn has a lovely drape. The elastic in the Esprit yarn adds stability to the bodice, which is knit at a tight gauge for the yarn. The armhole depth and shoulder straps are designed to allow a bra or camisole to be worn underneath.  The top is knit in one piece from the bottom up.

It's a wonderful pattern. I predict great success!

The "geeky bits," I like that. I hope this is a "hot seller!"

Oooo..that's pretty! I love the drape on that. That would look adorable over a long sleeved white shirt. I'm sure that this pattern will do well. :D

Yay! I will definitely be buying this soon.

Linea is beautiful! I will definitely have to knit this one!

it looks like a great pattern!
that kal sounds wonderful and i'd love to join but i don't think i can commit to spinning up enough yarn for a shawl at this stage! hopefully soon :0)

Thanks for this pattern, I'll be making way over to Paypal to snag this very soon!

Oooh, that's a very sweet top. I'm curious how you set up the PayPal account to take payment? Was it hard to set up?

Beautiful, thank you.

I just purchased mine--I can't wait to knit it! I might see if I can substitute yarns for it so I can knit from stash, though! Thanks!

Very nice top! I must knit it! But I think I'll have to wait until I'm finished being pregnant.... Although it sure would make a cute maternity top....

just spotted this on flickr and hurried over to order myself a copy. super cute design and yarn choice. can't wait to knit this baby up for summer.

Wow! What a beautiful shirt! It caught my eye immediately because my name is Linnea! Great job!
