Chris Bylsma

for Chris Bylsma Designs   2012


First Bylsma created Solo, a much adored sleeveless top in a fine yarn that hugs the neckline and body in an appealing way.

Now she's brought us the appropriately named J'adore. Bylsma: "Sometimes you just have to treat yourself, and this is it. Say hello to a sleeved, larger gauge version of Solo." Note the shifting rib on the nicely capped set-in sleeve that draws attention to your wrist. Somewhat surprisingly, the centre pattern on both Solo and J'adore is lace, not cable.

Bylsma recommends choosing a luxury fibre that " will enjoy knitting and wearing."

(In January 2014, Bylsma responded to consumer demand by introducing the long-sleeved cardigan version of this design, April in Paris-- Ed.)
