POW: The Kilimanjaro Top

The Kilimanjaro Top by Ramona Gaynor combines exploration and warm weather consciousness. If you are an adventurous knitter looking for a lace project, this top is perfect for you. It is worked in the round to the underarm and the front and back are worked separately back and forth. And the Blue Sky Fibers Organic Cotton Skinny is a delight to hold and knit with.

    The Kilimanjaro Top is very attractive and I would like to see more detail of the entire top. I also wondered where the pattern is available. Several other of the designer’s patterns were shown with links to purchase but not the Kilimanjaro Top. Where do I get more information?

    Agreed. Would like to see a picture of the entire top before placing an order.
