Joni is a modern interpretation of the quintessential vintage lace blouse. She’s playful and stylish, and easy to dress up or down. She will look just as good with tattered old jeans as with a summer skirt, and take you from day to night all summer long.
Joni is the perfect summer knit. There’s enough soothing stockinette to let your mind wander, but the lovely details (that lace panel!, the rounded hem!) ensure a fun and engaging knitting journey.
Joni is worked seamlessly from the top down. First, the back
shoulders are cast on and shaped using short rows. Then the
shoulders are joined, and the back is worked flat until the underarm. Stitches for the front shoulders are picked up and worked separately until the front neck cast on, after which the front is worked back and forth until the same length as the back. At the underarm front and back are joined and worked in rounds to the rounded hem, that is shaped using short rows. The pattern has the option for both a straight, unshaped or a tapered body. Neck and armhole finishing is worked last.
