I was in the grocery store when I was inspired to design this cover up. Every other woman I saw was wearing spandex or yoga clothes. My first thought was that these women need something to put over their athletic wear. This is my answer to that need.

The coverup has an all-over eyelet dot pattern. Wider at the bottom, the stitches between the eyelets are reduced from six to four stitches at hip level. The decreases are virtually invisible as they are worked on the WS above the decreases which create the eyelets. The vents at the sides are worked in K1P1 ribbing. The front and the back are identical.
