Fishnet Top


Versatile and androgynous, our Fishnet Top Knitting Pattern is super-easy to work.


Fishnet is a key element in dark fashion. Versatile and androgynous, it can be made into many kinds of garments. Following in the footsteps of our Fishnet Gloves, the light Fishnet Top can work for both him and her.

The model sweater is made with upcycled cotton, which is pretty close to the weight of Drops(tm) Cotton Viscose yarn. The sport weight yarn can be substituted with almost anything as long as the gauge matches. Cotton makes the fishnet top light for the summer, wool blend gives it extra warmth for the winter.

The sizing of this top is on the narrow side. It is worked in the round without shaping, so it suits a narrow, boyish figure best of all.

The pattern is beginner-friendly. It includes written instructions in Finnish and English, and a chart for the fishnet pattern. It also includes tips on how to modify the sweater to different hem and sleeve lengths.
