Description from Website:
We recently had a warm front come through Texas, bringing the temperature up to the mid-80s (about 30 degrees Celsius)… in March! This, of course, made me think of how dreadfully hot it will be in August. So I thought I’d get a jump on my summer wardrobe with a cute cotton top. It may be a little later in the year before you can wear this in your neighborhood, but that just gives you time to knit leisurely. Some basic sewing skills are required, but don’t be frightened - it’s not too bad.

Omega Sinfonia 100% mercerized cotton; 218yds/200m per 3.5oz/100g skein; 1 (1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2) skeins in color of your choice
Sample A was knit with #828 Lila; Sample B was knit with #832 Turquesa
