We are excited to have prominent local designer Irina Anikeeva join us to teach her pattern Air Dance Top. The airy lace pattern draws all attention to the back of this light summer top. The front and sleeves are worked in a simple yet attractive textured pattern using charts that Irina will throughly walk you though.

Irina will teach you all about the construction and shaping of this beautiful sweater. The body and sleeves of this top are worked in the round from the bottom to the underarms, then pieces are joined for working the raglan shaping. The pattern will be provided.
