Normally, I'm not a pullover sweater type of girl. I much prefer cardigans, and will often adjust a pattern from a pullover to a cardi to suit.
Quinn is an exception. It's a short sleeve, cotton/linen blend summer top.
And while it make me look rather large in these pictures (and admittedly, I'm not a tiny girl), it is rather flattering, and oh so comfortable.
I did change the bottom construction - I had never planned on making it with the asymmetrical hem as shown in the pattern - I prefer this tunic length. Over a pair of capris or shorts, or linen pants, it's a great summer top.
Quinn is from the most recent KnitScene magazine, which is fast becoming my favourite of all the magazines out there. There are usually 3-4 patterns in each issue that catch my eye, which says something about a magazine. I used an ancient pale green 50% cotton - 50% linen yarn I have had in my stash forever. It's from Elann, and I think I bought it over 4 years ago. It was nice to clear a small corner of the stash (which quickly got filled by something else). But while I was looking around for something suitable, and I found this, I also found a number of other summer-weight yarns that I had forgotten about. (Note to self - toss the stash more often to find gems that get forgotten!) So there might be some more summer projects to come.
But not next - Next up is some Tanis Blue lace weight wool. BUt it's lace weight, so I still think it's suitable for summer knitting...
