We may be biased (get it?), but we think this multi-directional top is a joy to knit. Harbor is a uniquely striped top worked on the bias. The fabric is beautifully textured and light, but dense enough to ward off the wind as you set sail from the harbor.

The body of this sweater is knit from the bottom up on the bias. First, a triangular shape is knit. Then, an even section is worked where increases are made only in the center while decreases are made on the edges. Finally, a decrease section is worked where top corners are decreased on both sides.
