Shaina Kit


To purchase PLEASE CHOOSE size first, then colorway in that size.

We've made kits for the Shaina top, a lacy, fun layer with three easy lace stitch patterns (yarn overs, knit two together, etc.)  The kit includes the Shaina pattern and all Amano Sami yarn you need for your chosen size. To purchase, please choose size first then colorway in that size.

We love this garment, which is made with four rectangular pieces, two for the front and two for the back that you then seam together once all pieces are knit.

All of them use the same three lace stitch patterns. For the bottom, designer Yumiko Alexander chose a lace pattern which makes a horizontal line with a wavy edge, The upper lace shows bold vertical lines. The lace in between makes a simple border and is useful as a buttonhole. So simple and cute!

The pattern comes with sizing for two widths (28 ½" or 34" wide) and two lengths so you can choose the combination of width and length to fit your style. The wider body covers the arms and is longer on the sides. If you plan to expand either way or both, choose the larger size.

Pattern also calls for a US 8 - 5.0 mm and a US 9 - 5.5 mm needle not included (top is knit flat so any length will work). And the pattern recommends choosing your button after you've finished because the size of your lace will determine the size of your button. Call us or come in and we can help with buttons when you're done!
