Aura Top - Knitting Pattern

Aura Top - Knitting Pattern

  • The Aura Top is a lightweight, long-sleeved top with set-in sleeves. The use of a fine mohair yarn and larger needles in the knitting process gives this top a slightly open and airy feel, perfect for layering. 


    The Aura Top is knitted flat in three pieces, the body and two sleeves. The body is knitted in the round from the bottom up until reaching the armholes, then you work flat on half of your stitches to form the front and back of the top. The sleeves are knitted flat from the bottom up then invisible seams are used to join everything together.  


    This pattern provides easy to follow detailed instructions using the following techniques: 

    Long tail cast on, knitting in the round, knitting flat, knit, purl, stocking stitch, decreasing, cast off, slip stitch, increasing and invisible seaming.

    Skill Level: Easy.
