Our Spring KAL: The Love Letter Top

The Love Letter Top is an ode to lace stitches. It will never be boring!

We invite you to join us in knitting this pretty summer top from Veronika Lindberg: The Love Letter Top by Veronika Lindberg.

This project is a KAL, the abbreviation for KNIT-A-LONG. A KAL is a community that knits the same project together in order to motivate and help each other . (So ​​this is not a course).

You can join the Love Letter Top KAL on Facebook here: CLIC or on the SLACK application of the Maison Tricotée group (Write to us if you can't find it: ).

When : From June 2, 2024 to June 22, 2024

Pompom on the hat? Céline will host KAL every Saturday at 7:00 p.m. (Montreal time) live from BALI.

You can follow his travel diary with lots of little surprises...

At the end of the KAL, a draw will designate 3 winners from among those who completed the top and will leave with small Balinese gifts!

This pattern is only available in English. You can use the free site DEEPL to help you with the translation.


We specially ordered the Antigone from De Rerum Natura . A superb 100% linen yarn grown in France without pesticides.

This thread will be perfect for enhancing lace and resisting over time while becoming increasingly supple and soft. The perfect match for a knit that is a beautiful homage to lace stitches.

The needles

2.5 mm needles : Circumference 40 to 60 cm (16 to 24'') for the armhole, I-Cord neckline and bottom edge

3 mm needles : Circumference 60-80-100 cm (24 to 40'') for the body. (The 100 cm will only be useful for the largest sizes).

Attention ! Use the needles giving you the right sample!

How do I choose my size?

The pattern recommends choosing a size with negative ease between 0-5 cm (0-2'') less than your bust measurement. This can be explained, among other things, by the stretchy side of the lace.
