"Peasant" Linen Top



It took me about three weeks to finish. I used a combination of knitting and crochet, as well as Fair Isle. The yarn - Louet Linen in Natural and Terracota was a pleasure to work with. I like it so much that I might make something from linen again, even though I have many more projects to take care of.

The Fair Isle band pattern is a Ukrainian folk design from this site http://rushnychok.org.ua/e-index.html

thus the name "Peasant".

That is really, really beautiful. I like the color combination you used, and the lace edging is perfect.
