NOTE: Working with rayon/linen yarn results in beautiful drapey garments with a lustrous sheen, it is however essential that you measure your gauge swatch AFTER washing, as the fabric changes and grows when wet.

Creekwalk is worked top down in the round with Raglan shaping. A summery top perfect for hot days and walking in creeks. It embodies what summer feels like to me, the warm summer air full of the smell of flowers and hay, the buzzing of insects in a meadow and shade and cool under the branches of the big trees along a creek. Also preferably, taking a walk in said creek to cool off!
