Bayswater is a swingy asymmetrical top is a simple, stylish sleeveless top worked mostly in the round in a sport-weight linen. The allover slip-stitch rib gives the fabric flattering vertical lines but it does not cling like traditional ribbing. The sloping hemline is created by working different numbers of mitred decreases at each side. It would look fantastic over leggings or a pencil skirt.

This top is meant to be worn with negative ease at the bustline. The A-line shape means that it will skim your body from the bust down.

Bayswater beach is in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood. It’s rocky and a bit wild. My mother played there all the time when she was growing up
