English pattern for Mix it Up
Mix It Up mixes knit and crochet – the top itself is knit, but the lace on the yoke is crochet.
This top is close-fitting over the shoulders, but after the lace section it billows out into the light, airy and drapey body. It has a simple rolled over hem on the neckline and sleeves. The body is finished with a linen-stitch border, which adds some weight to the body and helps the body drape beautifully.
Mix It Up is designed to have 2-6 inches of positive ease, and is worked at a very open gauge, creating a fabric with a lovely drape and move.

Note: Needle size is just a suggestion. Adjust needle size if needed to obtain gauge! Pay extra attention to your gauge when working the sleeves. Many knitters tend to have a tighter gauge when working small circumferences. If this happens to you, you will have to go up a needle size when knitting the sleeves!
