When I saw the pattern for Delphine in the Spring Interweave Knits, I was in love. I think part of the allure is that it's French. I have a special place in my couer for all things French since I visited Paris a few years ago. I also liked the fact that it is part lingerie, part corset and quite sophisticated.
I used Knitpicks Simply Cotton in sport weight. People often find cotton rough on the hands and unyielding. Not so with this yarn. It is soft and springy. It has a lovely drape and was a pleasure to knit.
Would I knit another summer top in cotton? The answer is simply oui, oui!
