When the Corona virus struck the world in the spring of 2020 and the lockdown banished us to our homes, Susanne Sommer designed the Stay At Home shawl for Nature's Luxury. This lovely shawl brought comfort to many knitters.

Back then, we had to stay at home – now the pretty Staycation top that Susanne has designed for us is for those who want to stay at home this summer and pass their time knitting!

“I chose ‘Staycation’, a combination of Stay and Vacation, for its name because it's a nice contrast to the not-so-voluntary Stay at Home, when you enjoy and intentionally spend your time at home or in your near surroundings, Susanne explains and adds ... and because I'm also a bit of a homebody...”

Staycation is a light sleeveless top that comes in two versions: a short crop top and a peplum. As often in Susanne's designs, it is knitted sideways, from one side to the other. Simple slip stitches create textured horizontal stripes.

The crop top is knitted in one colour of La Parisienne by Nature's Luxury.

For her sample, Susanne chose La Parisienne in colourway Seine.

The peplum version has a skirt part/peplum in a second colour of La Parisienne and additional stripes in Silk Divine. You can find the kits for the peplum here.
