Crop it Like it’s Hot

Stylish, chic, and oh-so-cozy, you are sure to fall in love with this super cute cable knit cropped sweater top and pencil skirt set! This delectable design features 2 elegant cable panels that run up the front and back of your curves for a sexy and sassy look. Not only does this versatile set look amazing together, it would look just as awesome worn as separates paired with other items in your closet. The skirt is knit from the top down with a fold over waistband to encase elastic for a personalized fit, and the skirt length is completely up to you! The raglan top is also knit to fit so that you can show as much or as little midriff as you wish, and the sleeves are knit from the top down enabling you to give your top your favorite sleeve length. Are you ready to crop it like it’s hot? I hope so!

Both the Top and Skirt are knitted seamlessly in the round – there is not one seam in this set so finishing is a total breeze! Detailed instructions are included to customize the length of your Top and Skirt to guarantee this set will suit you – you could even make the Top longer to show no skin if you prefer. The raglan top is knit from the bottom up, with stitches provisionally cast on for the sleeves to later be worked top down. If you have never done a provisional cast on, have no fear, it was my first time too! A detailed photo tutorial is included, as well as a link to an outside tutorial if you need further help. A photo tutorial is also included for seaming the fold over waistband as you knit for breezier finishing. The cable pattern is given both written and charted for your pattern reading preference.
